The Schatzkammer installation raises deep questions about the way we view Australia in a time of climate crisis and cultural uncertainty. Through stories of lost explorer Ludwig Leichhardt, it brings the European scientific idea of ‘collection’ into dialogue with Gulf Country Indigenous cultural mapping. The installation uses these same cultural questions to think deeply about the Mornington Peninsula as Indigenous Boon Wurrung/ Bunurong country.
Join us for dinner & conversations from a special guest panel including:
Uncle Mik Edwards is a Bunurong Muthi Muhti man & a teacher of land management & conservation at RMIT.
Professor Barry Judd is a descendent of the Pitjantjatjara people of north-west South Australia, British immigrants & Afghan cameleers.
