Decolonization is currently a very important trend in museum activities around the world. However, this is a relatively new is-sue for Polish cultural institutions. For my doctoral project I’ve interviewed curators of institutions that could be considered parallel and representatives of communities to which the obje-cts could belong in Mexico, Ecuador and Chile. What actions do they think should be taken to “decolonize” these collections? The presentation will be a summary of the conversations so far and the conclusions drawn from them, both in terms of Polish collections, as well as the condition of museums and their rela -tions with Indigenous communities.
