Forward-looking cooperation of the Berlin Ethnologisches Museum with Museums Association of Namibia launched


As part of a partnership between the Museums Association of Namibia (MAN) and the Ethnologisches Museum der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin, several researchers from Namibia have been visiting Berlin since spring 2019. Together with the researchers of the Ethnological Museum, they examined the more than 1400 objects from colonial contexts in Namibia in the museum's collection. They investigated their history, meaning and artistic potentials and reactivated the knowledge about them.
