November 3 | 13:30-15:00 | Museum Volkenkunde, Leiden
As part of the TAKING CARE conference on Thursday afternoon, four parallel break-out sessions take place. Please sign-up for one of the sessions during registration.
For this workshop, participants are invited to look with us at a selection of objects that form part of the museum's collection and the output of two artist residencies from the Taking Care Project. Using these materials, we will experiment and create multiple zines that explore and reflect upon the connections and shared values of these historical and contemporary ethnographic practices. The goal is to use the format of a zine as a playground to uncover these threads that run through the objects to contextualize their meanings and origins.
