This 300-level, practice-based, research-driven course will take as a point of departure the biographies that intersect with your life trajectories. You will use these as personal search queries to create an imaginary version of the Wonderkamers (trans. Cabinet of Curiosities, also known as Wonder-room) of the Zeeuws Museum.

We will dedicate the course to the question: can artifacts from different temporalities and localities help us to reflect on our own socio-cultural positionalities and - agencies today? To support our making, we will tap into theoretical and ethical endeavors that, together, can provide a reflective frame to make work based on heritage and material culture studies: Critical Making , and Decolonizing the Museum.
