LAB 3: Historical collections, contexts, and connections / Focus: Oceania

Lab 3 will look for new ways of presenting ethnological objects from the historical collections which firmly anchor them in contemporary contexts. It aims to show connections that link collection objects with individuals and local communities, with the histories of institutions and nations. Together and with the Linden-Museum team, indigenous scientists and cultural experts will examine approaches and forms of presentation that can make these relationships visible—without losing sight of the respective aesthetics and artistic significance of the objects.
