On 09 November 2022, the DITSL in Witzenhausen will host the kick-off event for the project "Provenance research on the East African collection of the Museum in Witzenhausen". The event introduces various perspectives on the project, including the scientific approach to the documentation and interpretation of the objects in the collection, the view of possible societies of origin on collections from colonial contexts, and its relevance in the political, academic and cultural debate on dealing with colonial heritage in the State of Hesse and Germany at large. The project is funded by the German Lost Art Foundation and the State of Hesse.
