Object Biographies / Teaser

How an ethnographic collection is received depends entirely on the narrative that accompanies the individual objects. Digging into the origins, making the diversity of cultural perspectives visible – this was the goal of “Object Biographies.” Taking three objects from the Africa collection as case studies, this collaboration between African and European scholars found new ways to tell the objects’ story, travelling back to their origins to bring them closer to Berlin’s museum-going public.
