Online 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 investigates the meaning of red as a colour in various cultures by looking at case studies from the Amazon region, New Guinea and Polynesia.
