SMBA and the Stedelijk Museum - in collaboration with ASCA/ACGS at the University of Amsterdam, Moderna Museet Stockholm, Folkwang Museum Essen, and the Tropenmuseum Amsterdam - present the three-day conference Collecting Geographies: Global Programming and Museums of Modern Art.
The conference is part of Global Collaborations, the three year program launched by the Stedelijk at the end of 2012 to explore developments in the visual arts around the world, with special focus on upcoming regions such as Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. The project is based on collaborative partnerships with experimental and multifaceted art institutions around the world and includes exhibitions, publications, events, an online platform, and this upcoming conference.
The conference consists of public keynote lectures, panel discussions, as well as a large number of lectures and academic sessions with limited access devided in 24 themed sessions. For these sessions, papers were selected from an open call, to which an overwhelming number of curators, artists, theoreticians, sociologists, and scholars responded, from institutes like Centre Pompidou, MoMA, Guggenheim, and Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
