When we envision a new form of a museum, we could probably start by dislocating the ‘Museum’ and reclaiming the ‘Land’ where it is located.
‘Memory and Memoricide of the Land’ is a collaborative project by Yoko Negami from co・iki residency in Tokyo and Honggyun Mok, a Korean curator. In a remote residency running from 29 October – 15 December 2021, participating curators will research and explore the relations between the museum and the land, memory and memoricide of the land, alongside their own curatorial practice on deconstruction/reconstruction of existing museum models.
The participating curators/researchers for this research residency will participate in:
- An exchange of Ideas: Participants will have weekly meetups to exchange ideas on a regular-basis (on Zoom/Clubhouse -TBD after the selection).
- Research: Participants will make progress on their own research of ‘Memory and Memoricide of the Land’ to reconstruct an alternative museum model throughout the residency period, consulting and discussing with other participants and curators(collective r and d*).
- Output: Participating curators/researchers will present their curatorial practice and upload the related essays online.
A stipend of 200,000 KRW (~145 EUR) will be paid to participants.
