Perspectives on the Handling of African Cultural Property in Basel Collection and Research Institutions.
Why is Basel, of all places, home to such a large number of institutions related to the African continent? The development is based on a longer tradition of academic engagement with Africa in the region. With the university's clear commitment to research about, in, with and for Africa, Basel has developed into an international center for interdisciplinary African research.
The exhibition presents the individual and collective history and present of five Basel institutions from the perspective of students: the Basel Africa Bibliographies, Mission 21, the Museum der Kulturen Basel, the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, and the University of Basel. The institutions as well as exhibition visitors are invited to engage with their perspectives. Deal with it! A space for discourse is created.
