galang 01 & 02
The galang collective convenes regularly to discuss the role of museums and other cultural institutions in the past and present colonisation of First Nations people. It’s a sovereign space to share culture and creative practice, and challenge narratives of sovereignty, decolonisation, identity, power and language.
This edition contains both galang volumes 01 and 02 packaged together in a slipcase.
galang volume 01 was published in March 2022, and galang volume 02 was published in November 2022. Both volumes are published in collaboration with the Powerhouse museum and Garru Editions.
