A cycle of discussions: Decolonizing the Mind

22 January – 11 March 2020

DESCRIPTION

Garage and the education project School of Neighbors’ Languages resume their partnership as part of the Museum’s Inclusive Programs department’s recent direction focusing on the work with people with migrant experiences—by introducing a new cycle of discussions around the notion of the so-called colonial thinking and the means of “de-colonizing” thereof.

How do world politics and global migration processes impact each other, and by extension, the relationships between people? What do “imperial mindset” and “decolonized thinking” mean? How do borders shift in the modern world, and where do they take us with them? The cycle of discussions De-colonizing the Mind is aimed at tracing how the scientific apprehension of these issues and the society’s response to them have evolved over time.

CO-ORGANIZER

School of Neighbors’ Languages is an education project promoting the idea of studying languages historically, culturally, and geographically close to Russia. The initiative was originally launched by MUZEON Park of Arts in 2016 as a social project named School of Migrants’ Languages, which taught the languages of the countries of origin of the largest number of migrants to Russia, such as Tajik and Moldovan, among others.
