We are happy to announce that on the 21st of October we are going to have a panel discussion with Claudia Augustat, Raphael Gross, and Wolfgang Muchitsch on the restitution of colonial cultural assets.
The event starts at 5 pm and will last until presumably 7 pm, the venue will be announced at a later stage. Firstly, the debaters are going to lead with their opening remarks (aroung ten minutes each) and then we will have a discussion on the podium. THereafter, the other participants will be asked to join the discussion. Subsequently, the discussion can be resumed at a small buffet (with fingerfood and beverages).
TOPIC: assessing the consequences of European colonisation on the cultural heritage; revisiting former colonies' claims to restitution of colonial cultural items, which they deem relevant to their ability to exercise their right to cultural self-determination
