Now “Collecting Thoughts” starts

Svenska / English

Grafikens Hus has received a three-year support from the Swedish Arts Council to look at print collections in Sweden and internationally from a postcolonial and intersectional perspective. Together with artists and other experts, we want to investigate and formulate a vision for how a museum, such as Grafikens Hus, can build a collection, work with activation and accessibility. How can a collection become a meeting place for an open and honest dialogue? How can it become a place for learning and innovative conversations? We want to investigate in different ways the history of the collection / archive and what it means to collect today.

Process leader and curator of the project is Mmabatho Thobejane.
