Workshop: Loose Ends in the Museum Depot – on the Status of Colonial Collections
January 17 @ 09:30 - 16:00
Colonial collections in various Swiss museums have recently received renewed scholarly and public interest. Has the status of colonial collections, whether legally, in terms of conservation, research and exhibition policies or with regard to accessibility and restitution initiatives, changed?
We invite curators and scholars to join the workshop and discussion. The workshop is a follow-up of the “Stolen from Africa?” workshop on 8 May 2019, supported by the Schweizerische Akademie für Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften.
