Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts Reading Circle #3

Tuesday, 24 May 2022

18.00 – 20.00

Repslagargatan 15B, Stockholm

In connection with Grafikens Hus’s three-year project Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts, this reading circle centres collecting, collections and archives. Through the project, Grafikens Hus formulates a method for collecting that can guide our future collecting decisions. Through gathering to read we clear the space to critically reflect on collections and processes of their formation together. During the circles, we will read and discuss various texts on collecting, collections and archives.

For this session, we will be reading ’An(other) Invitation to Epistemological Humility: Notes towards a Self-Critical Approach to Counter-Knowledges’ by Otto Maduro. This is a chapter taken from the book ‘Decolonizing Epistemologies: Latina/o Theology and Philosophy‘ edited by Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz and Eduardo Mendieta. Copies of the text will be provided prior to the session.

The reading circles are facilitated by process leader, Mmabatho Thobejane. Register for this third reading circle via email at

Arrangements to join via zoom can be made.

In collaboration with Kvinnohistoriska.

Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts is supported by Kulturrådet.
