Collection

How can the Museum re-imagine its role and responsibilities in the community, which it’s embedded in? In what ways can the Museum document and collect contemporary rituals and their material forms that propose alternative strategies of belonging in the city?

The Research Center for Material Culture offers an Inter/national Internship Program, which offers young academics and museum professionals the opportunity to pursue further research and professional training within our museums. 

Rethinking (Re)presentation foregrounds our interest in research that critically engages with the politics of representation, focusing on the museum as a technology of representation or on the collections themselves.

With Collections, Ethics and Responsibility the RCMC is committed to the further development of ethical and responsible approaches for the acquisition, care and display of our collections.

The Research Center for Material Culture (RCMC) promotes cutting-edge research by both the museum’s research staff and by national and international researchers on the museum’s collections.
