"Within heritage movements" (2013)

“The project focuses on the repercussions that the ’A Stolen World’ exhibition and my previous participation in it had as the Peruvian government is claiming the ‘Paracas’ collection back. The purpose is to expose the stage of affairs that the negotiations of repatriation of the Peruvian textiles collection ‘Paracas’, owned by the city of Gothenburg, is in right now and to raise questions about: how does the politics regarding relocated heritage, now part of collections at European museums, work today and to develop new weaving techniques imitating the Paracas ones that have never been used during postcolonial times.”
