Pidginization as Curatorial Method: Messing with Languages and Praxes of Curating – Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung

Thoughts on Curating, Volume 3

12,62  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

In this compelling rethinking of curatorial practice, renowned museum director, curator, and writer Dr. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung proposes that Pidgin languages and pidginization as a mode of being and doing offer a decolonialized reinvention of communicative practices—a space in which the boundaries between disciplines of knowledge collapse and sociopolitical, economic, ethical, and spiritual concepts and questions are renegotiated. Written as a series of powerful anecdotes, the book grounds its provocative ideas in personal, cultural, and political histories of challenge and improvisation, and argues, as Ndikung writes, that “pidginized curating is a curating that combines works, ideas, practices, and languages in resistance to canonical conventions, cultural stasis, ossified practices, dead rhythms, and singular forms.”
