LAB 7: Shared history, migration and restitution / Focus: Mapuche (Chile)

The aim of the lab is to establish the basis for a long-term institutional cooperation with the Mapuche Museum in Cañete (Chile). The museum is an important centre for the decolo­­nisation efforts of the indigenous group, as the Mapuche are still confronted with complex land rights issues and the consequences of colonialism. The Linden-Museum acts as a contact zone for the meeting of various cultural repre­sentatives from South and North America. The theme of the workshop and the presentation will be determined by representatives of the Mapuche themselves.
