Online talk: »The Long Day of the Communal Museums« with Marcela Moraga, Maria Thereza Alves, Julia MenschSaturday, 12 June 2021, 19:00 – 20:30
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
›The Office of Dreams‹ of the museum connects with initiatives and cultural micro-phenomena active in Latin America, emphasizing the community museum model: a phenomenon that crosses the Latin American continent with the aim of recreating, strengthening, giving meaning and systematizing the collective memory of communities as a tool to sustain and create their own life project in the future, combating the impotence and oblivion of colonial power and resisting processes of globalization.
In this talk, moderated by Teobaldo Lagos Preller (project group museo de la democracia), we will approach reflective work on the territory and its cultural heritage with three examples of community museums present in the exhibition: Museo Comunitario del Agua, Renaico (Chile), Museo Comunitario de Xico (Mexico), Museo del Hambre (Argentina). From these participatory constructions artists Marcela Moraga, Maria Thereza Alves and Julia Mensch will exchange experiences based on the participation and perspectives of the communities and their territories as places of encounter, conversation, activation and circulation of the contents created.
