New publication at L’Internationale Online: Decolonising Archives
L'Internationale aims to build a sustainable constellation of European museums, these civic institutes where art is used for public benefit, for inspiration, reflection and debate. The first collaboration addressed these issues through the EU-funded project 1957-1986. Art from the Decline of Modernism to the Rise of Globalisation (2010-2012), which analysed the relationship between art and society on both sides of the traditional East-West divide.
One of the main sites where research and debate related to the current project of L'Internationale takes place is on the newly developed platform: L'Internationale Online. This platform is a space where commissioned texts, research and artistic projects, online curatorial projects and exhibitions drawing from the confederative work on the collections and archives of the members' institutions, will be published. The research fields of "Politics of Life and Death", "Decolonising Practices", "Real Democracy" and "Alter Institutionality" intersect these contributions.
A lively discussion is instigated through the Opinion section, to which a selected group of bloggers contribute. L'Internationale Online has the specific function to present the topics addressed in the various activities of L'Internationale, and in UoA projects. It is a place where both differences and commonalities can appear and be debated.
