Artists, Heritage and the Museum


Inserted in the official calendar of the Portugal-France 2022 Season, this initiative bears the seal of CeiED – Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Education and Development, University Lusophone. The Portugal-France Season 2022 is a bilateral diplomacy initiative between Portugal and France, which aims to deepen cultural relations between the two countries. At the context of recent concerns with non-European heritage, the history of museology and the de-colonial initiatives associated with it, the museological institution and the way in which it functions, have been intensely scrutinized. The collective exhibition Artists, Heritage and the Museum, and the associated events analyze the museological institution and the heritage through the lens of contemporary art, especially conceptual art, and with the tools of a multidisciplinary and dynamic methodology.
