The most valuable, the best known, and the most popular – the “Best of” guided tour presents select objects from all exhibitions. At the same time, we question the criteria of such rankings. What are they based on: collectors’ interests, scientific value or personal preferences? What’s at the top of your personal list, and why?

Pretty clothes are fun and contribute to our individuality. But how are designs created? What narratives lie hidden in the yarn? In StrawGold and other exhibitions we encounter numerous objects that provide background information as to the way we dress, and invite us to explore fashion traditions in other parts of the world.

Using wood, furs, cloth leftovers, tulle, shells, and bags of imagination we create a mythological creature. At the same time, we consider where the materials come from. Are they natural or artificial?

Who Needs this mask? Discussions concerning the restitution of cultural heritage objects
5 June 2019, 18:00 - 19:30 PM

What’s behind the claims for the restitution of cultural heritage objects? What does restitution mean for the future of anthropological museums? How does one reconcile the interests of the countries of origin with the concerns of research and conservation and the interest of museum visitors? In a short guided tour of Thirst for Knowledge meets Collecting Mania we first take a look at some “sensitive” objects before debating the issue in a podium discussion.

With Dr Anna Schmid, director of MKB, Prof Dr Elisio Macamo, University of Basel, and Prof Dr Gesine Krüger, University of Zurich.

Thirst for Knowledge meets Collecting Mania
9 June 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Museums are facing challenging times: what seemed a must for an ethnographic museum in the past – for example, a collection of human skulls – has now become a sensitive issue. The guided tour explores the motives behind the collecting mania of earlier days and poses questions as to the appropriate handling of sensitive objects today.
