Benin: Restitution as a Process

from 18 September 2022

The restitution of objects looted in 1897 in the Kingdom of Benin (Nigeria) is in full swing. The Linden Museum is a member of the Benin Dialogue Group, which has prepared and accompanied this process for years. With a presentation in the upper foyer, we trace the path of the objects to the Linden Museum historically, make milestones of their return to Benin City visible, and present perspectives on their future.
