    “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.
