Sich mit Sammlungen anlegen (NEW)

Gemeinsame Dinge und alternative Archive



The book investigates the subject of collecting from a critical perspective that queries and expands on the existing ideas of museums and archives. The approach starts from voices that criticize the absence of items and associations in collections; it then progresses to the discussion of various new collecting strategies.

The point is to take collecting seriously against a trend towards media impact-oriented exhibitions and an "economization" of collections: in order to think differently and afford it a long-term place with a view to democratization, facilitation, relationality, and immateriality.

In addition to theoretical texts and artistic contributions, the publication comprises spotlight-type discussions: statements from experts who curate and create collections – and who critically engage with them.

    An innovative discussion about collections and archives
    Collecting, storing, archiving in theory and in practice
    Statements from numerous international experts who curate and create collections
