With presentations and a conference, the discourse programme of the 12th Berlin Biennale is dedicated to the thematic focus of restitution.

The transnational research project Re-connecting “Objects”: Epistemic Plurality and Transformative Practices in and beyond Museums [“Objects” (re)connecting: Epistemic Plurality and Transformative Practices in Museums and beyond] asks how the treatment of colonial collections can be transformed through action-oriented research. The presentation in the context of the 12th Berlin Biennale is a cooperation with the Technische Universität Berlin.

The conference From Restitution to Repair states that while the restitution debate is gaining attention worldwide, it is also in danger of becoming institutionalised and simplified. Restitution, as a form of cultural resistance, should be integrated into the broader concept of repairing individual and societal trauma (as developed by Kader Attia).
