Relationships between museums and Indigenous people have become increasingly complex in recent years, with questions of ownership, appropriation, decolonisation and repatriation coming to the fore.
Border Crossings’ ORIGINS Festival, which offers a space in Britain for Indigenous people to articulate their cultures, has been working closely with Indigenous artists and major museums to move these important conversations forward.
In this lecture, the festival director, Michael Walling discusses a range of Indigenous interventions in museum spaces, from Indigenous Australia and Arctic at the British Museum to Tanya Tagaq at the National Maritime Museum and Totem Latamat at Manchester Museum.
