    “Between the years- transitional symbols”






    From child to teenager, from teenager to adult… Everyone goes through the progression of childhood through to adulthood and then old age. But what does it mean to enter new phases of life, and how do we celebrate these transitions? Are there any particular objects or companions which accompany us when making the transition into a new phase and help us master everyday life? Starting off with selected objects from Samoa and Papua New Guinea, which we discover on our visit to the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, we find out about our personal symbols of transition and print them on t-shirts or bags.

    For families and children aged six and above.

    Why and how did the exhibits come into the Weltkulturen Museum collection? In the exhibition COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? we look at the origins of objects on show whose provenance is interwoven with colonial history or the history of the Nazi era in Germany.

    TALK





    “The Höllerer Collection – On the provenance of a missionary collection from the colonial era”
    With Matthias Claudius Hofmann (curator Oceania)












    What if the documentation of a collection seems to be almost completely lost and the knowledge of the historical context is only preserved in fragments? How can we reconstruct this history? These and other questions are discussed by curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann on the example of a colonial collection from North-East New Guinea collected in 1904/05 by a technician of the Mission Neudettelsau, that was acquired by the museum in 1906.
