Museum of Forgotten Belongings — call for submissions


Kamee and Knar are working on a project through Armenian Creatives called the Museum of Forgotten Belongings, an installation that collects and exhibits objects from our past or artifacts from ancestors that we have lost or don't have in our possession (anymore).

One example object is a tailored suit made by my grandfather. He was a celebrated tailor in Beirut, but no one kept any of the suits he created and I have never seen one. We want to put together a collection of objects like this from the SWANA region.

If you’d like to participate, you’d be responding (in a google form) to the following prompt:

"What ancestral belongings, objects or artifacts have you lost? They can be precious, mundane, real or invented. You may have heard about them through family, or seen them in photographs, and so on. Give it a title, describe the materials, and tell us the story behind it."

By reconnecting with these objects, we invite you to dream up stories of the places you have never been but still feel like you belong to; to imagine into the everyday lives of our ancestors that we are out of touch with, the histories and memories that feel fragmented or absent.

We would create illustrations of each object and curate them as though they were part of a museum exhibit.
