The sessions are open to practitioners, students, researchers and those working at the intersection of theory and practice. Every other week, invited guests present their ongoing research which inspire fruitful discussions. Due to the global pandemic and heightened safety measures, all sessions of this winter semester’s CARMAH Museum Lab will be held via Zoom. Feel free to join, wherever you are located!
CARMAH’s Irene Hilden, Harriet Merrow and Andrei Zavadski reflect on the Humboldt Forum’s digital opening in December, the protests it provoked, and their media coverage. The essay argues that the institution’s present is complicated, but its future will be even more so.
In the recently published book ‘Das Indernet. Eine rassismuskritische Internet-Ethnografie‘ (2020), Urmila Goel deals with ethnographic material on the Internet portal ‘Indernet,’ collected by the researcher over the past seventeen (!) years. Click here to find out more (in German).
