Call For Research: Diaspora and Collections
The editors of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam‘s Stedelijk Studies Journal are looking for approaches, ideas, or experimental projects that align with the broad scope of the Diaspora as a framework for the critical examination of museum collection strategies for its latest issue. Abstracts or artwork proposals are due by March 1, 2022.
They are interested in how the Diaspora could be a foundation for collection policies that are based on kinship building, strengthening cultural affiliations, and how movement and relocation can be applied to the display and mediation of museum collections. They are interested in the histories of peoples and objects themselves, and the speculative possibilities for museums that are grappling with the responsibility of being cultural mediators today.
