“COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? Case Studies from a Colonial and National Socialist Context”

Curators Julia Friedel and Vanessa von Gliszczynski guide through the exhbition and give insights into the research process behind the exhbition.

How did ancestor figures from Nias off the western coast of Sumatra enter the European art market in the early twentieth century? Why could the museum buy objects rather ‘cheaply’ in Paris and Amsterdam in the early 1940s? Is a weapon belt from South Africa war booty?

These are just some of the questions arising from a critical review of the Weltkulturen Museum’s collection.
