In this seminar, critics, artists, curators and activists are invited to explore the languages and practices of decolonisation that question the imperial and Eurocentric narratives and representations upon which the museums of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were founded. If, as Foucault pointed out, ‘the return of the subjugated knowledges’ has begun, then we should ask ourselves what are the epistemologies that these ‘local, discontinuous, disqualified and illegitimate’ knowledges articulate, what artistic practices do they support and what alternative institutions do they mobilise. In an academic and museistic context lacking in critical references to decolonial theories and practices, this encounter wishes to provide a cartography of counter-stories and critical instruments, and create a forum for debate and action capable of generating networks of production and research, and collectively imagine the transformation of contemporary museums.
