Accepted paper:

The Berlin Humboldt-Forum: on difficulties to tell a global story including Europe

Author:

Helmut Groschwitz (Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities)

Paper short abstract:

In 2019 the Humboldt-Forum will show a new presentation of ethnological and art objects - but will still lack European artifacts. The paper reflects both on the chances to integrate both views, and on experiments to fill this conceptual gap, i.e. the project "EuropaTest" by Humboldt Lab Dahlem.
