Inside the Box: Program 2020
In the spring of 2020, six new episodes of the series Inside the Box will raise new exciting themes. This year the discussions will be moderated by Helen Arfvidsson (social anthropologist and curator at the Museum of World Culture), who together with researchers, writers, museum staff and artists will find out what is “inside the box”. Welcome!
Due to Covid-19 the public part of the series has had to be cancelled and the recordings of the podcast will be done in accordance with regulations during 2020. Most of the episodes have also had to be postponed until Autumn 2020.
Why is the Wiphala burning?
Thursday - to be uploaded in the end of September
The Wiphala flag symbolizes the struggle of the Latin American indigenous peoples. But it is disputed and provocative. In the news from Chile and Bolivia we can read about how it unites people, but also how it is burned. Social anthropologist Anders Burman, Erika Ticona, anthropologist, textile artist and activist, and Adriana Muñoz, archaeologist and curator of the Museum of World Culture, discuss this and the heritage connected to this symbol.
