Podcast: That Feels Like Home
That Feels Like Home uses MoDA’s collections to build new stories that connect museum objects to contemporary topical issues. The podcast brings together academics, students, creative practitioners and researchers who engage with the museum’s collections in different ways.
Our first series explores the meaning of ‘home’ and problematizes its meanings in the context of the collections. Each episode explores MoDA’s collections in imaginative ways to bring new insights and argue for the relevance of the museum’s collections to debates today.
