Amanda Pinatih, Design Curator at Stedelijk Amsterdam since 2020, is challenging the idea of what a museum can be. An art historian, curator and PhD candidate at University of Amsterdam, she co-founded the award winning Design Museum Dharavi, a nomadic exhibition space outside Mumbai which co-designs new work with the rich local maker population of Dharavi, to be enjoyed interactively with the people of the area.
