TRAVELLING OBJECTS

Friday, 24.11.2017 at 8pm

Whenever migration and tourism take place, it is not only the people who are travelling, but also things and objects, which are sometimes telling it’s very own stories.

Objects can represent migration history and contain detailed memories for those who had to leave all of their belongings. As souvenirs, they can help keeping the holiday in mind and furthermore reveal the ¬†tourists’ relation to the visited countries and their imagination of authenticity. Other objects, which are part of our daily lifes¬†in Germany, are originally “migrated” from other regions of the world.

We will talk about the mobility of objects in contexts of migration and tourism with invited experts on the topic.
