Exhibitionary Politics

For the ‘Exhibitionary Politics’ seminar in the COM2077 Visual Cultures module, stage 2 undergraduate MCH students were given museum objects to display and interpret in our new exhibition space. The seminar was intended to give students a sense of the intellectual and political choices involved in producing displays and communicating knowledge. They also got to wear snazzy white gloves! The session builds on research-led teaching by staff members Chris Whitehead, an authority on museum display and Visual Cultures module leader, and seminar leader Gonul Bozoglu, who works on heritage, museum and memory politics’.
