Lecture by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung
Somatic Experiences and the Future Museum – on performativity, phenomenology of the embodied mind, and the postcolonial body as site of discourse
4th of February 2015
18.00-21.00, EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art
The debates on the museum of the future and the future of museums have become even more virulent in the last years. It seems to be a consensus that the concept of the museum has to be redefined, rethought, reframed, and the museum itself has to be re-institutionalised and the institution re-mused. How can this museum of the lived and (re-)enacted be applicable, realised or recognised in the post-colonial body?
