The so-called ethnological collections are intertwined with European colonialism and show a close relationship to the colonisation of the world. Through the museums in Europe, an understanding of the “other” was formed – a worldview that still has an impact today.

The opening event in the series 99 Questions asks about the status quo of ethnological museums and collections. Where do museums currently stand? What are the current approaches to dealing with the burden of history? What effect do the guidelines have in dealing with the coloniality of museums? And how is a new definition of museum achieved?
