Division of the World: An installation curated by Pippa Skotnes (with Jos Thorn, members of the staff of the Archaeology Department, and the team at the Centre for Curating the Archive)

This is a project of ARC the Visual University and its Columbarium.

The Archaeology Department’s foyer has been transformed into a permanent exhibition about the department. The installation includes materials from the department’s storerooms, personal collections from members of staff and engages with fieldwork-archives and the interpretation and curation of such materials. This project exemplifies ARC’s mandate to draw material out of the university’s columbarium and interrogate a discipline, its’ practitioners and visual methodologies through curation. The installation was opened at a special event on 2 October, 2012.
