Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts Reading Circle #1
10 March 2022, 18:00 at Stockholm Kvinnohistoriska Office (Repslagargatan 15B)
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 first session, in connection with the upcoming collaborative event with Stockholms Kvinnohistoriska, we approach the topic of ‘subjectifying the archive’ and will read parts of ’Subjectifying the Archive: Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyen at the Museum of Ethnography’, an excerpt from the book ’Co-creation labs: illuminating guests, artists and new voices in European museums of world culture’. We will read this alongside Julietta Singh’s ’No Archive Will Restore You’. Copies of both texts will be provided.
The reading circles are facilitated by, process leader, Mmabatho Thobejane. For the first session, she will also give a brief introduction to the project.

In collaboration with Kvinnohistoriska. Samlande tankar/Collecting Thoughts is supported by Kulturrådet.
