The Laboratory of Restitution, Reinventing the Locus of the Return

Workshop as part of the Discursive Program

Curated by: Felwine Sarr

The showcase neutralizes the magic object, how to reinvent a new life for the objects returned on the continent? This reinvention is not fixed in the object but continues in the living, the development of the space “receptacle” of the returned objects. This workshop proposes to share and imagine with the participants a new vision of restitution, as reinvention.

This workshop is part of the discursive program of the 12th Berlin Biennale. Taking the restitution debate as a starting point, it explores how colonialism and imperialism continue to operate in the present.
