ANNUAL CONFERENCE FOLLOW UP

Bode-Museum – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Am Kupfergraben, 10117 Berlin

Negotiating Cultural Heritage:
Making, Sustaining, Breaking, Sharing –
A Conversation

Architecture, artworks, crafted objects, texts, music, as well as sites, places, sounds and tastes are cultural products that can contribute to a sense of community, belonging and identity. Objects of the past are deemed worthy to be stolen and reclaimed, to be exhibited and reconstructed, to be researched and collected, or even to be destroyed. As such, cultural goods or "things" are reference points for narratives of heritage and community.
Drawing on the discussions of the conference "Making, Sustaining, Breaking: The Politics of Heritage and Culture" that took place in October 2016 in Heidelberg, we want to debate the following questions: What does cultural heritage mean in different national and regional contexts? Who can claim it as theirs, and who decides what constitutes cultural heritage, how it is preserved, displayed, or restored? Should museums and other cultural institutions act as preservationists, explorers, or mediators of this heritage? Can their practices be "decolonized"? Whith other forms of cultural heritage could be included in museal representations and archaeological practices? How to share cultural heritage?
