A new lecture series: A collaboration with Centre Culturel Suisse Paris!

“Pandemics do not materialize in isolation,” Edna Bonhomme, a historian of science, has rightly pointed out. “They are part and parcel of capitalism and colonization.” A crisis brings to light the hidden cracks in a system, something particularly true for the cultural sector, which has been highly affected by COVID-19.


A new lecture series: A collaboration with Centre Culturel Suisse Paris!

“Pandemics do not materialize in isolation,” Edna Bonhomme, a historian of science, has rightly pointed out. “They are part and parcel of capitalism and colonization.” A crisis brings to light the hidden cracks in a system, something particularly true for the cultural sector, which has been highly affected by COVID-19. Organized by Futuress and the Centre culturel suisse Paris, the lecture series “Making and Unmaking Exhibitions” aims to critically address the impact of the climate crisis within the museums, galleries and other exhibition contexts. Understanding that sustainability means the concerted effort towards climate, spacial, and social justice, we’ve invited practitioners from different cultural backgrounds to share their varied perspectives. This includes Dhaka Art Summit curator Diana Campbell Betancourt, MAM-Rio artistic co-director Keyna Eleison, Bangladeshi architect Inteza Shariar, Swiss artist Ramaya Tegegne, and Australian museum scholar Fiona Cameron, amongst others. The full program can be watched online, and will later appear as texts on Futuress.
