    Reading Club at the Weltkulturen Museum: Decolonization as Healing?
    With Amelie Kleinhubbert (Cultural mediator)
    Accompanying the exhibition "healing. Life in balance"

    In the reading club "Decolonization as Healing?", texts are read and discussed together that are based on themes from the exhibition "healing. Living in balance". Colonial continuities in everyday life and how to deal with them are the focus. What role does colonialism play in the museum? How is our idea of nature colonially shaped? What can healing mean?

    At the first meeting, the group will explore the positioning of the Weltkulturen Museum in the colonial fabric. Literature will be announced at registration.

    Other dates: 2 November, 7 December

    "OBJECTS FROM THE BENIN EMPIRE IN THE COLLECTION OF THE WELTKULTUREN MUSEUM "
    Talk with Audrey Peraldi (Cultural scientist)
    Δ "OBJECTS FROM THE BENIN EMPIRE IN THE COLLECTION OF THE WELTKULTUREN MUSEUM"

    „Objects from the Benin Empire in the Collection of the Weltkulturen Museum“
    Presentation with 
    Audrey Peraldi (Cultural scientist )

    The so-called "Benin Bronzes" from present-day Nigeria play a central role in the debate on the restitution of cultural property. Also in the collection of the World Cultures Museum are over 50 metal, wood and ivory objects from the Benin Empire (Nigeria). When and under what circumstances did they enter the collection of the then Ethnological Museum? A provenance research project funded by the German Center for the Loss of Cultural Property is currently being conducted at the Frankfurt museum to investigate the complex ownership relationships behind the objects.  Cultural scholar Audrey Peraldi will present biographies of personalities involved and provide insight into ongoing research using archival documents. It addresses the perception of these objects as ritual, historical, cultural, artistic, and political.
