Materiality – Museology – Knowledge
Museums were constitutive of academic disciplines that engage with different kinds of materiality, such as anthropology, archaeology, art history and natural history. Yet, with the disciplinary evolutions towards other methodological approaches and theoretical frameworks, museums have often been relegated to sites that (re)present the knowledge produced elsewhere, in universities or research institutes. This workshop re-approaches museums through their underpinning museology, as epistemological apparatus – featuring spatial modalities, material practices and aesthetic sensibilities – which are constitutive of knowledge and brimming with epistemic potentials to be activated in the pursuit of all kinds of questions.
