Webinar: "Colonial theft of cultural assets: restitution? Reparation?"

Mission-Colonialism Revisited, Mission 21

Ritual objects, works of art, plants and animals from all over the world looted during the colonial era are stored in European museums - including in Switzerland. The Basel Mission also collected religious, ethnographic and natural history objects for research and exhibition purposes in its working areas in Africa and Asia. Should non-European cultural objects remain in Western museums today? What does an appropriate restitution practice look like?
