Museum of Mankind
8 Mar 2024 - 4 Sept 2024
In April 4654 while doing some gardening, Guy Manson came upon a collection of ancient objects in the soil. He sought the expertise of the curators at the Museum of Mankind and a full archaeological dig was launched.
"Museum of Mankind" is a parody exhibition that highlights misogyny and oppression in history, heritage and the museum industry.
This exhibition was inspired by the Museum of Dissent. The Museum of Dissent collective explores the possible nature of institutional dissent through interactive exhibitions and events.
This exhibition started as a pop up at the Science Museum and Jewish Museum in 2019.
