If museums represent one of the most effective technologies through which modernity and coloniality are constituted, what is the potential of epistemodiversity to transform research methodologies and art institutions?

The aim of this discussion is to explore the potential of contemporary art to critically interrupt the colonialist nature of its displays and historical narration that overcome colonial power relationships. Contemporary art is a nomad way of thinking that transit between different disciplines and epistemologies, as a catalyst for new creative interconnections. The curatorial tactic of mixing objects from different social spheres very often makes visible the nature of (power) relationships between means of production, disciplines, spheres of knowledge, politics and diverse cultures. This conversation between cultures and times requires the creation of a new dialogues between cosmologies where the main challenge is to avoid understanding cosmovisions as an object of study but as a place of utterance instead.

Speakers include Clementine Deliss & Elvira Dyangani Ose, chaired by Maria Iñigo Clavo.
