     The People’s Collection is a project, initiated in November 2014, that involves an exploration of the various ethnographic museums around the world, and asks questions about post-colonialism, memory and identity. In this project, people originating from a colonised country are invited to visit an ethnographic museum and to rethink their identity on a post-colonial context. The work has explored the collections of museums worlwide, including: the British Museum, London, UK; MET Museum, NY, Dahlem Museum, Berlin, Germany; Bunjilaka/Melbourne Museum, Melbourne, Australia, Museum of Civilisation, Quebec-city, Canada, among others.
