CARMAH strongly condemns the military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. As we, scholars of memory, war, and genocide, know all too well, military violence always has long-term and far-reaching consequences that affect human lives way beyond the war zone. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues in Ukraine as well as with all the Ukrainian people, and send our support to those affected by the cynical and cruel decisions of the Russian authorities.
This major multi-researcher ethnography of museums and heritage in Berlin provides new insight into how ›diversity‹ is understood and put into action in museums and heritage. Exploring new initiatives and approaches, the book shows how these work – or do not – in practice. By doing so, it highlights ways forward – for research and action – for the future.
Feel invited to have a look at our Reflections page where you can read about the digital opening of the Humboldt Forum, the exhibition Connecting Afro Futures at Berlin’s Kunstgewerbemuseum and ethnographic observations of digital museum practices during the Covid-19 crisis.
