With Carola Wedel (Documentary-Maker and journalist), Prof. Dr. Viola König (Director, Ethnologisches Museum / Humboldt Forum), Dr. Manuela Fischer (Curator, American Archeology, Ethnologisches Museum / Humboldt Forum), Maryanne Redpath (Berlinale NATIVe) and Amalia Cordova (Wallmapu, Chile. Film Curator, Filmmaker and Scholar specialized in Indigenous Film).
Moderated by Dorothee Wenner (Berlinale Delegate for Subsahara Africa and South Asia)
In cooperation with Ethnologisches Museum / Humboldt Forum
The collections of the Ethnologisches Museum (Ethnological Museum) comprise outstanding examples of material and immaterial goods that were created outside of Europe and brought to Berlin in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Divided into geographic regions and arranged in thematic displays, the presentations of the collections convey fascinating insights into the diversity of non-European cultures. As the largest partner involved in the Humboldt Forum, the Ethnologisches Museum will move its collections to Schlossplatz in the centre of Berlin in the near future with plans to reorganise and introduce new concepts to the presentation of the museum’s holdings.
