    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour coding worlds”

    with curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann (curator Oceania) and co-curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski (curator Southeast Asia)

    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.

    Using various objects from the exhibition, curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann and co-curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski show how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.

    Zoom lecture and talk.

    “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible”

    with Julia Albrecht and Stephanie Endter, Curators of the exhibition, Weltkulturen Education

    HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT provides an opportunity to see or hear things from (potentially) unfamiliar perspectives. Combining objects from the collection with five artistic responses to the matter, the exhibition takes a critical stance to colonialism and its consequences, which are still felt today.

    Julia Albrecht and Stephanie Endter will have a conversation about the thematic focuses of the exhibition and how they approached it as curators. The tour will also show various views and close-ups of the exhibition. The conversation will take place on Zoom.

    ONLINE WORKSHOP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULTS
    “What is this doing here?”
    As part of the exhibition “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible”
    Δ ONLINE WORKSHOP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULTS

    “What is this doing here?”

    with Julia Albrecht (Weltkulturen Education and curator of the exhibition), Leonie Neumann (curator Africa collection) and Frauke Gathof (Research assistant Africa collection)

    How did the objects become part of the Weltkulturen Museum, and under what circumstances? In the workshop “What is this doing here?” we undertake a critical exploration of the stories of several objects in the museum collection, looking at their background and how they were acquired. These objects are closely intertwined with colonial history in Germany.

    The participants will gain insights into the debate on ownership and demands for restitution in an ethnological collection, and in group discussions they will then work out a potential stance on the issue.

    Online-Workshop via Zoom

    As part of the exhibition “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible”.
