I am invited by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam to write several articles for the Global Collaborations online journal (editor Christel Vesters). Global Collaborations is a three-year project in which the Stedelijk Museum aims to generate an informed and well-balanced overview of developments in contemporary art from a global perspective. The project is an initiative of Jelle Bouwhuis, head of Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, and project curator Kerstin Winking.
The first article critically explores the legacy of the controversial exhibition Magiciens de la Terre (1989) in relation to developments such as the global turn, postcolonialism and global art studies. If you’d like to read this and forthcoming articles please visit the Global Collaborations online journal.
