DEEDS CALENDAR: Temporary Exhibition: Loot. 10 Stories – Humboldt Forum | until 26.01.2025

In the exhibition Loot . 10 Stories, initiated by the Mauritshuis in The Hague, the Humboldt Forum presents from 22. March 2024, ten case studies focused on looted art across three historical epochs: the Napoleonic Wars, the colonial era, and Nazi Germany. All the objects on show have their own provenance stories, which here stand in for countless others. In an artistic intervention, guest curators and creative directors Eline Jongsma and Kel O’Neill bring these stories to life using videos, virtual reality, and texts, showing possible approaches to objects like these in the museum context. Some of these artefacts are from Berlin collections in the Stadtmuseum Berlin, the Ethnologisches Museum, and the Gipsformerei (Replica Workshop). A Späti on 22 March and a Day of Debate on 23 March will also address the themes of looting, restitution, and museums working together on addressing the provenance of artefacts.
