“HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible”

with Lea Steinkampf (guest curator, assistant in the Visual Anthropology department)

“Hidden in Plain Sight” provides an opportunity to see or hear things from (potentially) unfamiliar perspectives. Combining objects from the collection with five artistic responses, the exhibition takes a critical stance to colonialism and the associated consequences, which are still felt today. 

Lea Steinkampf will take you through the exhibition. Her main focus will be on her curatorial contribution “Thesaurus – Politiken des Suchens und Findens” (Thesaurus – Policies for Searching and Finding). She talks about her work in the picture archive and takes three visual objects as case studies in order to look at the archival practices of arranging, labelling and classifying.
