Museums as Crime Scenes - Ariella A Azoulay, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Jonas Tinius (20-06-05)

A Conversation with Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, and Jonas Tinius.

What is the relation between the large universal and encyclopaedic museums of Europe, and the continent’s diverse imperial projects? How did the modern development of academic knowledge in the name of a colonial mission civilisatrice obscure processes of theft, loot, and violence? In this panel, media scholar Ariella Azoulay, curator Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, and anthropologist Jonas Tinius unravel these and other questions with direct reference to their writings on object subjectivity, agency, and photography.
