When I embarked on the Museum and Exhibition Studies program, the concept that struck me the most was decolonization. As a Mexican cultural advocate, I realized that decolonization is an underused and unfamiliar term within the cultural field in Mexico and Latin America. My research project focuses on developing a tool to identify and diminish colonial narratives in the written spectrum within Mexican contemporary art museums. One of the early steps of my project includes explaining decolonization in the museums' framework in the easiest way possible. This video is beneficial to my project and a helpful tool for incoming students of the MA MUSE program.
