Collections, like Universities, are factories of knowledge. Institutionally, they often appear to be rooted in place, but spatially and intellectually, they exist in constant and dynamic motion. In this exhibition, we ask you to consider the tensions between stasis and movement in UCL and its collections. Why, where and how were UCL’s collections formed, preserved and curated? Why and how have they moved across space and over time?

Curated by Claire Dwyer (UCL Geography), Margot Finn (UCL History), Stefanie van Gemert (UCL Dutch), Kate Smith (UCL History) and Ulrich Tiedau (UCL Dutch).
