Heterotropics symposium: Tropical Dissonance

06 juni 2017

Heterotropics and the Research Center for Material Culture are pleased to invite you to the symposium Tropical Dissonance: Decolonizing knowledge through ethnographic archives. The symposium is organized by the research collective KUNCI Cultural Studies Center (Yogyakarta, Indonesia) as a concluding event of their residency project at the Tropenmuseum.

Tropical Dissonance brings together scholars, curators and artists from a wide range of practices to explore the intersections between decolonial research, artistic practices and alternative knowledge production. Focusing on the use of ethnographic objects, or more broadly colonial archives in imperial and post imperial knowledge formation, we want to explore the multiple, often hidden, fractured legacies of this colonial past in the present  and its impact on how we understand the world today.

The contributors of this symposium will discuss various methodologies of studying colonial archives and epistemologies, through different sensorial approaches and experiences

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 – 11:00 to 16:00
Tropenmuseum Studio, Linnaeusstraat 2, Amsterdam
