Talk: "Dismantling a World Culture Museum"?

Dealing with the collection area "Archaeology, World Art, Applied Arts" at the Museum Folkwang, Essen

Many museums are now struggling with how to think about their previous interpretations of colonial era collections and collecting practices. This talk by Dr Nadine Engel, Curator of Nineteenth and Twentieth Century collections at the Museum Folkwang in Essen, will focus on her preliminary efforts to decolonize this museum. She is moderated by KWI International Fellow Ryan Nutting, who also works on questions of historic museum education and exhibition methodologies.

She joined the Museum Folkwang in June 2018 as Curator of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century collections. In this role, she is responsible for the museum’s collection of „Archaeology, World Art, Arts & Craft“. She is the author of Resonance Chamber. Museum Folkwang and the Beginning of Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza’s German Expressionist Collection and has organized exhibitions at the museum including the series “Bauhaus am Folkwang”, the presentation of ceramics by Young-Jae Lee in 2019, as well as two centenary exhibitions planned for 2022, for which she is currently conducting research on the core parts of the collection.
