Acaba de publicarse este podcast con entrevista a Clémentine Deliss y música de Ben Vida. En él se comenta la problemática de trabajar con una colección etnográfica mientras presenta el proyecto del Weltkulturen Museum.
Clémentine Deliss has been Director of the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt since 2010. She studied contemporary art and anthropology and holds a PhD in Philosophy, and has extensive experience as an independent curator in Europe and Africa. She is now directing an institution for the first time – an ethnographic museum that opened over one hundred years ago and is trying to find its reason for being. It is what Deliss calls a sick museum, a permanent condition that needs to be healed.
SON[I]A talks to Deliss about the possibility of a post-ethnographic and post-colonial museum, and about the strategies that she has tested in recent years to counteract the ideology of conservation. These include the ‘remediation’ of objects in the collection, fieldwork in the museum, and opening up spaces for work, production and research that go beyond storage and exhibition.
