Book presentation and talk by Natalie Bayer and Nuray Demir

The anthology reflects upon museums and exhibitions from the perspective of postcolonial museology and critical migration and regime research. Beyond critical analysis, this collection of texts is about collecting strategies and forms of action that make it possible to think of curating as anti-racist practice.

Using as springboards the intersections between social battlefields and curatorial practices, as well as a focus on agency, this book examines the relationality of struggles for and against representation. Therefore, the focus is on discursive strategies of resistance, contact zones and approaches to re-appropriation. The publication contains contributions from theory, art and activism to new perspectives of the art and culture industry, which refer to transnational approaches, counter narratives and alternative forms of action.
