Students will open the ¿black box¿ of museums to consider the past and present roles of institutional collections, culminating in a student-curated exhibition. Today, museums assert their relevance as dynamic spaces for debate and learning. Colonialism and restitution, the politics of representation, human/object relationships, and changing frameworks of authority make museum work widely significant and consistently challenging. Through thinking-in-practice, this course reflexively explores ¿museum cultures¿: representations of ¿self¿ and ¿other¿ within museums and institutional cultures of the museum world itself.

This course interrogates cultural products from Germany and the U.S. (novels, graphic narratives, tv and film, advertising images) to explore the cultural imaginaries through which people understand themselves, their compatriots, and the incoming migrants to the geopolitical regions in which they live.
