How did the exhibited objects come to Berlin? Who were the actors involved in the regions of origin? Who brought them here and why? Did they enter the collections during the colonial period? What significance did they have and still have in the countries of origin and is their storage and presentation in the museum still appropriate today? You will discuss these questions with provenance researchers who will retrace the path of the objects in dialogue with representatives from the countries of origin.

Practical Notes

  • Recommendation to wear a mask

    Visitors aged 6 and over are recommended to wear an FFP2 or medical face mask in all interior rooms of the Humboldt Forum. Unless otherwise stated, this also applies to guided tours and events. For your own safety and the safety of your children, we recommend that all age groups take a rapid antigen test before visiting the Humboldt Forum.

  • Meeting point & time

    The meeting point for guided tours and the location for workshops can be found on your booking confirmation. In order for the tour to begin punctually, please arrive 15 minutes before the programme is due to start. We ask that you allow for this additional quarter hour when planning your visit.
