Leere Vitrinen? Zum Umgang mit Objekten aus Tansania. Führung in Deutsch

In the organizer's words:
The Ethnological Museum Berlin houses around 10,000 objects from what is now Tanzania. They were appropriated - often violently - during the period of German and British colonial rule.
To whom and to what do the objects that are now in the museum depot belong? What stories do they have that have not been told until today? Should these objects still be exhibited in Berlin today? What kind of voids do we encounter when dealing with these topics?
The exhibition "Leerstellen.Ausstellen" dares to try: the showcases in the exhibition are not empty, but original objects are not to be seen in them either.
The guided tour through the exhibition deals with the origin of some of the objects, their histories, questions of restitution and a contemporary approach to sensitive objects in exhibitions. Always in the foreground is the question of voids in archives, historiography and our own perception. How can we exhibit objects today that were violently appropriated?
