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?

Thirst for Knowledge meets Collecting Mania – cancelled
21 June 2020, 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 – is now 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.

The exhibition playfully reveals the manifold practices of how people remember specific moments in life, but also how they are quickly forgotten. From birth to death, significant events are passed on by word of mouth, carved in stone, or, as the case may be, never disclosed.

You and your friends are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition.
