Forging Folklore, Disrupting Archives

Curated with Magdalena Buchczych and Alexandra Urdea, Constance Howard Gallery, London, 15 May – 30th of July 2014

This is an exhibition where we experiment with new methods of ethnographic representation of both archives and folklore during socialist Romania. The exhibition highlights the importance of animating folkloric and traditional objects through experimentation with collaborative, participatory and visual approaches. For more information on this exhibition, on the neutrality of folklore and on how research in the archives resembles a search for shiny things, please read the article: Forging Folklore, Disrupting Archives: Curatorial Explorations between Tradition and Innovation.
