”I conducted a workshop exploring policy documents as political spaces. I split the expert council into three groups and tasked them each with reading a policy on collection and acquisition. The workshop participants found that collections serve as foundations for the museums, and that new works are acquired to “complement” the existing collection. Artist in Residence Munish Wadhia commented, “Instead of re-writing history, maybe re-imagine history?” For Grafikens Hus, currently looking ahead at building a collection, the question arises of how such a foundation can be created?”
