Activate

To bring attention to Tropenmuseum’s diverse sound collections and the knowledge and histories that are embedded in these collections, Research Center for Material Culture and RE:VIVE announce their Unlocking Sounds collaboration featuring new EPs from three leading contemporary artists.

The RCMC also invites a more general public to get involved with our collections through debates, lectures, artist talks and film screenings. These public programs bring a wide array of stakeholders, including academics, artists, and performers, into conversation with our publics on selected themes.

Ethnographic collections are spaces for histories of relations, colonial relations, knowledges, desires, lifeworlds, materials, and techniques.

In collaboration with external partners the RCMC provides a platform for innovative research, experimentation and public engagement. Through various programs we seek to foster a space for active conversations around issues relevant to the museum and its collections.
