The Tentacular Museum: On the co-curation of widening gaps. Environmental Lunchtime Discussion
What roles can museums and collections play, in the growing need to convey polyphonic narrations on climate change? In this presentation, Lotten Gustafsson Reinius discusses the multi-disciplinary dialogues and other co-curations as a tentacular weaving across differing knowledge regimes, scales and temporalities.
The entrance to the exhibition "The Arctic - While the Ice Is Melting" invites visitors to walk through cracks in the ice.
