Entangled: Stuttgart – Afghanistan
Relationships in the past and present

There are thousands of objects, photos, and documents from Afghanistan in the Linden Museum. Their exciting and sometimes problematic stories tell us a lot about personal experiences and memories, but also about political and economic circumstances and interdependencies. They embody highly ambivalent facets of German-Afghan relations in the past and present.

In recent months, a working group of interested people from Stuttgart and the surrounding area, with and without reference to Afghanistan, has focused on the photographs of the Stuttgart Badakhshan expedition (1962/63). The results of their work are on display in the LAB room of the museum.

The LindenLAB is funded by the Ethnological Collections Initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
