Project: DiVersions

DiVersions: installations + publication

Opening and publication launch: Thursday 10 October 18:00 - 21:00

DiVersions experiments with online collections of cultural institutions as sites for decolonial and intersectional practice. Inspired by the way ’versioning’ functions in networked software tools, seven interactive media installations and a publication explore how online collections can accommodate radically different, and sometimes opposing perspectives. A second version of DiVersions will be hosted by De Krook (Ghent) in the spring of 2020.
