Museum on the Couch #4 - Opening at 22 June

We warmly invite you to the opening of the exhibition Museum on the Couch #4 on Friday, 22 June at 6pm, at the GRASSI Museum of Ethnography in Leipzig.

Over the past three months, the participants of the Museum on the Couch workshop-seminar have created critical and inspiring interventions, installations, that will be staged within the museum's permanent exhibition. Beside these installations, also different performances are presented at the opening, with whom the students aim to provoke discussion about the diverse issues faced by anthropological museums: issues of representation, of seeing, and of looking the other way.

This year's exhibition is the fourth installation of Museum on the Couch in cooperation with the GRASSI Museum of Ethnography. Since the collaborative project commenced in 2015, more than 70 students from Leipzig University have created approximately 30 interventions and performances within the museum.

The participants cordially invite you to the opening of Museum on the Couch #4 where the participants will present their projects with the aim of stimulating reflexive discussions amongst the audience around conceptions of representation.
