Pidginization as Curatorial Method

Messing with Languages and Praxes of Curating



A new vision for activist curatorial practice.

A new vision for activist curatorial practice.

In Pidginization as Curatorial Method: Messing with Languages and Praxes, renowned curator and director Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung proposes Pidgin languages as expressions of resistance to settler colonialism and pidginization as a way to approach curating (and the world), creating new spaces for encounter, knowledge, and pluralities. Deftly deploying the thinking, writing, and rhythmic beat of musicians, philosophers, linguists, poets, and novelists, Ndikung offers a new vision for activist curatorial practice and beyond. This is the third volume of the series Thoughts on Curating, edited by Steven Henry Madoff.
