“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.
