The Museum of Bad Vibes

Releasing The Bad Vibes

Aug. 9, 2022

In this series of sonic museum tours, we’ve learnt about four objects currently in storage at various museums in the UK. We’ve addressed themes such as colonialism, theft and cultural erasure and how these have informed the function that museums play in society today. In this final tour, Hanna Adan speaks to a number of experts in the field to learn how practices can be changed to make museums more inclusive spaces, more effective purveyors of cultural history and more respectful of the objects in their collections, and the communities that they originate from.
