Studies in Curating Art no VI

In Spring 2021, Ghostbusters-Anti-Racist Working Group has reached out to groups in Stockholm who share and work towards anti-racist practices. Contained in this publication is an edited transcript of a roundtable conversation between Ghostbusters-ARWG, Brown Island, branching out from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design, and SKH Brown Island, based at Stockholm University of the Arts.

“Flowing from personal experiences, we are firstly able to collectively explore how whiteness’ strategies for self-preservation largely yield the same reactions regardless of where it is challenged. This also works to reflect on how whiteness moves through institutions, particularly of learning. Secondly, the making of this publication served as a moment of solidarity-making, where learning across our differences was possible. We attended to the question of how we may be there for each other as we go about this work in our respective environments."

With additional contributions by John-Paul Zaccarini and Rudy Loewe.
