How we always wanted to have lived
Goethe Morph* Iceland

Throughout 2022, the trans-cultural art initiative Goethe Morph* Iceland invited artists and art collectives in Iceland, Germany, Kenya, Mali, and around the world to artistically explore How we always wanted to have lived. The different projects will come together in September 2022 when artists, thinkers, and creators meet to put their artistic and curatorial practices, workshops, performances, conversations, and public research in dialogue with each other at The Nordic House in Reykjavík.

Author and curator Dan Hicks, best known for his book The Brutish Museums (2020), takes stock of the debate around the enduring legacies of empire in our museums, universities and society at large. In this episode, he talks about recent events in Europe and North America, from removing statues and un-naming buildings to returning artefacts from colonial museums. As a society how can we make amends for the past? And what are the next steps for upholding antiracism in the future?
