Call for Papers: PAA Europe, 2019. “Challenging Times: Provenances in Museums” at the Museum der Kulturen Basel, 19th to 21st September

The meeting coincides with the exhibition “Thirst for Knowledge meets Collecting Mania”.

“Museums face challenging times: what seemed a must for an ethnographic museum in the past – such as a collection of skulls – is now a sensitive issue. In collecting, objects were removed from their original contexts, items made of rare and precious materials such as ivory or gold aroused desires, and exotic weapons were acquired by the score. The exhibition explores the motives for this former collecting mania and poses questions as to the appropriate handling of sensitive objects today.”
