FOLK: A Personal Ethnography
Krakowska 46, Kraków
16.05 - 17.08.2014
Schuman’s exhibition focuses on the regional and cultural heritage of his own family – as well as that of the Ethnographic Museum itself – and the ways in which these are represented and archived within the Museum. The curator’s family history plays an important role here, but the exhibition is also an examination of the Ethnographic Museum’s own practices over the last century, as well as its mission as “a centre of reflection and understanding of ourselves and others”.
Aaron Schuman is an artist, writer, editor, and curator. He exhibits both his photographic and curatorial work internationally, and regularly contributes articles, essays, and interviews to a wide range of books and publications, including Aperture, Foam, TIME, Photoworks, HOTSHOE, the British Journal of Photography, and more. Schuman is also a Senior Lecturer at the University of Brighton and at the Arts University Bournemouth, and is the founder and editor of SeeSaw Magazine (www.seesawmagazine.com).
