LindenLAB 4: Entangled: Stuttgart – Afghanistan

March 30, 2021 until October 16, 2022

The Linden-Museum houses thousands of objects, photos and documents from Afghanistan. Their exciting, sometimes problematic stories tell us a lot about personal experiences and memories, but also about political and economic backgrounds and interdependencies. They represent highly ambivalent facets of German-Afghan relations in the past and present. A working group of interested people from Stuttgart and the surrounding area, both with and without a connection to Afghanistan, focused primarily on the photographs of the Stuttgart Badakhshan Expedition (1962/63). The results of their work were exhibited in the museum’s LAB room on the 1st floor.

The LindenLAB was funded by the Initiative for Ethnological Collections of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
