If Objects Could Speak
Using augmented reality and a film camera, Elena Schilling and Saitabao Kaiyare went to Kenya in search of traces of a colonial-era Kikuyu object.
With a presentation in the upper foyer, we trace the path of the objects from the Kingdom of Benin to the Linden Museum historically, make milestones of their return to Benin City visible, and present perspectives on their future.
We actively and self-critically face our past and take the responsibility for the museum's collection holdings very seriously. We are open to requests for restitution from relatives and representatives of the communities of origin.
