LindenLAB 8

What remains?
Insights for the Future of the Linden Museum

11 December until end 2023

Laboratories are experimental fields of utopian thinking. In seven LindenLABs on the topics provenance, participation and presentation, we have tried out a lot in the last four years. At the end, however, questions remain: What exactly have we explored? What will remain of this experiment? What will we reject again? How can the project be transferred to museum practice in the long term? And how do we fulfil the diverse societal expectations we face as an ethnological museum?

With LAB 8, we are making the lessons learned from the LindenLAB visible once again in the museum. At selected locations in the museum, experiences and ideas for the further development of the museum will be outlined in five thematic fields.

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