Curated Decay: Arts of Losing, Noticing, Listening
02/06/2018 — 02/06/2018
Talk by Caitlin DeSilvey for Tuned City Messene
How might a focus on material process and persistence, rather than preservation and permanence, reorient heritage practice? What new relationships with the past (and the future) emerge from intentional accommodation of transience and decay? When change is inevitable, can we move past discussion of loss and ‘letting go’ to think instead about metamorphosis and ‘letting be’?
We examine disposal across different heritage domains, and consider the potential for ‘imaginative decommissioning’ (DeSilvey 2017) and the possible differences between disposing in cultural and natural heritage realms.

Heritage futures and future heritages
Rodney Harrison will give his inaugural lecture on Tuesday 27 June at 6:30 pm at University College London.
Bureaucracy / Data
‘I can’t tell you how many objects we manage, but I can tell you the number of records’. This statement illustrates how closely heritage is connected with, perhaps even defined by, data-driven, bureaucratic processes
When we say something has ‘autonomy’ we usually mean that it is free from external control or influence. In academic debates, some have argued that autonomy is the defining quality of rewilding initiatives
Heritage is often said to be the human legacy preserved for the benefit of future generations. A major challenge in this logic lies in how to overcome the future’s inherent uncertainty.
