The opening days allow a variety of perspectives on the collections.

What you will find

After more than four years, the first part of the exhibitions of the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin can finally be experienced once again – newly curated with a contemporary feel and in the centre of Berlin. In the spirit of the “poetics of multiplicity” by Caribbean writer and philosopher Édouard Glissant, representatives of different societies as well as international artists, experts and collaborators will share their perspectives on the collections and bring new insights to their origins during the opening days. The previously hidden stories of these exhibits will then be uncovered to become visible and audible. Only through these different encounters – especially with the visitors – can the beauties, fragilities and contradictions of diversity begin to come to life. We look forward to many encounters with you!
