    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”

    with Lea Sante

    Our world is full of colour, but do all cultures see it in the same way? While the scientific basis for perception is identical for everyone, light waves can’t really explain how we name our impressions of colour, the number (and kind) of categories we divide these colours into, or the meanings and associations we ascribe to them.

    Touring the exhibition, Lea Sante shows how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.

    Panel discussion (in German) accompanying the exhibition “StolperSeiten – NS Raubgut in der Universitätsbibliothek Frankfurt am Main”, exploring holdings in Frankfurt am Main’s university library which were found to have been looted by the Nazis.
    Δ "Great Art and Everyday Matters – Shedding Light on Provenance Research in Hesse"

    Panel discussion (in German) accompanying the exhibition “StolperSeiten – NS Raubgut in der Universitätsbibliothek Frankfurt am Main”, exploring holdings in Frankfurt am Main’s university library which were found to have been looted by the Nazis.

    With Eva Raabe (director of the Weltkulturen Museum), Daniel Dudde M.A. (provenance researcher at Universitätsbibliothek J. C. Senckenberg, Frankfurt am Main), Dr. Udo Felbinger (provenance researcher at Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt) and Dr. Saskia Johann (consultant on provenance research at Hessischer Museumsverband, Kassel). The event will be moderated by Imke Folkerts (consultant for internal communication in the PR and communication department, Goethe-Universität). The library is exploring a number of questions in this project: Who did a particular book belong to? Who was this person and what was their fate? How did these books get into the library and who was involved in this process? What counts as looted goods and what doesn’t? You can find more information on the exhibition at Frankfurt’s university library here.

    Δ “RED IN FOCUS”

    Theme related guided tour with Oliver Hahn (research assistent Oceania collection)

    In many cultures, the colour red plays a significant role in the way people see the world, whether it is painted on their bodies for beautification and protection, or serves as a sacred colour, or features in the material culture. Consequently, it is a colour that also appears in many different sections of the exhibition “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”. 

    Oliver Hahn guides through the exhibiton. He investigates the meaning of red as a colour in various cultures by looking at case studies from the Amazon region, New Guinea and Polynesia. 

    Please register via the booking button “TERMIN BUCHEN”. The number of participants is limited to ten people.
