Publicada em

Has your museum ever tried to engage audiences in controversial topics, moderate discussions about social movements, or introduce inclusive practices only to be stymied by your board or director? Does it feel impossible for your museum to be an advocate for social justice issues?

This session is informed by the growing movement of museums and museum professionals working to dispel the myth of institutional neutrality or nonpartisanship, the reality of museum professionals who can’t overtly address controversial topics and a belief that “museums are places that are quietly subversive.”

  9. 9. We All Make Choices: Finding and Telling More Stories The artist’s depiction is an opulent Western European construct, meant to create an illusion of authenticity. Images of native inhabitants were created for foreign audiences. As a tool of colonialism, photographs often portrayed the exploitation of lands and peoples. (OBJECT LABEL) European artists perpetuated stereotypes and subject matter that conveyed the deeply problematic worldview that Western Europe, dominated by Christianity, was morally superior to other regions. INDIGENOUS CORPS OF DISCOVERY TOURS w/ Delesslin George -Warren (Catawba Indian Nation) DID YOU KNOW? 19th c. white, Euro-American artists profited from their romanticized and mythological representations of Native Americans. Meanwhile, Native American children were being forcibly removed from their homes and placed in boarding schools - with the express purpose of assimilating them into white, Euro -American culture.
