“Now we’re leaving the hall of stuff we stole from other cultures and entering the hall of stuff we paid too much for.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A black, white, and grey cartoon depicts an adult guide leading 6 children through a museum’s galleries. The gallery on the left looks like it’s displaying objects from Native American and First Nations Northwest Coast cultures, 3 masks and a textile or mantle. On the right is a gallery of framed paintings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @newyorkercartoons ・・・ A cartoon by @caitlin.cass, from 2018. #TNYcartoons ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌈Shoutout to @ricebananas and @ytunaomitambien for knowing this cartoon is very Marabou ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marabouatthemuseum #museums #museumeducation #museumstudies #museumtour #rethinkmuseums #reimaginemuseums #repatriation #uncomfortabletruths #newyorker #newyorkermagazine #newyorkercartoons

Speaking Up at the British Museum’s “I Object”

View this post on Instagram

In the “I Object” exhibition at the British Museum, there is discussion of pins/badges as forms of protest. Visitors are invited to, “design a badge and tell us what matters to you” on circular paper and hang them up for other visitors (and the museum) to see. 🌈 Marabou’s badge reads, “Transparency in Museum Acquisiton Processes.” More on the “I Object” exhibition in an upcoming post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marabouatthemuseum #museums #museumstudies #britishmuseum #iobject #londonmuseums #london #stolen #spoilsofwar #accountability #transparency #museumsarenotneutral #displayitlikeyoustoleit

Get Ready for Indigenous Peoples Day

Join @decolonizethisplace and Marabou on October 8th, Indigenous People’s Day at the American Museum of Natural History. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @decolonizethisplace ・・・The work and preparation by over ten groups has begun. This requires us all. This is not about the museum in a way, it’s about all the sights of injustice in our city and a machine of white supremacy that allows for a Trump and a Kavanaugh and more prisons since 1492. Spread the word. #decolonizethisplace ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #decolonizemuseums #decolonize #museumstudies
