Dutch anthropologist and curator, Nanette Snoep, has been working since 2016 at the head of various ethnographic museums in Germany, after being a curator at the Quai Branly museum for a long period of time.
In her exhibitions, she disrupts the way ethnographic collections are presented, not hesitating to propose themes that challenge established knowledge associated to the conception of projects for new audiences (alternative scene, migrants, artists).
In addition, Nanette Snoep actively participates in contemporary debates on the restitution of museal collections acquired during colonization, in Germany and in France.
This roundtable at Le Cube – independent art room invites the public and Nanette Snoep to discuss these problematics in the moroccan context. Being an open space of exchange, this event is an opportunity to reflect all together, on questions related to collections constitution, restitution and history.
This roundtable is followed by a conference of Nanette Snoep at the Goethe-institut Rabat, on the following morning. During this event, the curator proposes to discuss some attempts she undertook, to cause a change in the traditional rules that govern ethnographic museums
