>From an extremely critical point of view at the intersection of art and
politics, curator and educator Nora Sternfeld
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/nora-sternfeld/capsula> constantly breaks
the fourth wall of research and curating, shining a light on terms such as
"exhibition", "gallery", "representation", "museum", and "collectivity",
always looking for cracks and hidden connections.

In this podcast, Nora Sternfeld starts by putting forward a few ideas that
can help us understand the crisis of the museum as institution, "as it
happened", from construction to eventual collapse. She talks about the
crisis of the museum model, but also its origins and its relationship to
the neoliberal machine that it forms part of, as welll as some attempts to
overturn its endemic problems. From there, we talk to Nora about education,
power, historical narratives, para-institutions, "unlearning" strategies,
and collective knowledge projected into the future: "How can we learn
something that doesn’t exist yet? It is not possible that one person will
know something that does not exist yet, it’s a contradiction in itself.
But, together, each of us, has a bit of a knowledge of something that
doesn’t exist yet. So if we bring these imaginations together we can build
on a possible imagination that can grow stronger and stronger. In this
sense I think that learning cannot be imagined without collectivity. We
learn together."
