Current projects

Decolonisation projects comprise a vast network of museum activities. Restitution and repatriation projects can last many years and reach over several countries. Projects span from provenance research on SES (State Ethnographic Collections of Saxony) collections to data collection and presentation for internal and external databanks. The results are presented in exhibitions and discussed in formats such as the GRASSI Talks.
