For the fifth session of the Spirals virtual seminar series, titled 'Metadata Politics', we are excited to host Dr Rebecca Kahn whose work explores how museums and archives are using the semantic web to build integrated collections, and the ethical and technological challenges presented by current data models.
The Spirals talk “Imperial Fevers, Invisible Lives” by Dr Edna Bonhomme, shone light on the intersections between colonialism and Black health, the importance of Black feminism, traditional healing and curatorial practices in the area of medicine. This reflection will unpack the cruciality of each of these, with a view on the type of curatorial practices that should be pursued for Black health to thrive in the South African context.
The Centre for Curating the Archive is pleased to announce the fourth session of the Spirals virtual seminar series, titled 'Black Feminism, the Scholarly and the Curatorial'. Circulating ideas about art, art practise and archival engagement between two lively, dynamic, yet different global north and global south settings, the series draws Berlin based art practitioners, curators and scholars into a conversation with scholars and students based in Cape Town.
