The project will create a digital repository with the databank Tainacan where Ritxoko from 77 museums worldwide can be presented online, as well as on social media such as Facebook and Instagram.
The SES collections contain over 80 Ritxoko. Researchers in Brazil, Belgium, and members of the Iny-Karajá can do provenance research together using online conferencing tools and digitalized photos and inventory cards. They also analyze maps where the Ritxoko were collected and review the ways in which historic Ritxoko where made and designed. A primary source for this research is the archival material from Fritz Krause (1881-1963), a Leipzig based collector and later, the director GRASSI Museum for Völkerkunde zu Leipzig. He traveled in South America and collected Iny-Karaja material culture for the GRASSI Museum in 1908.
