LindenLAB 8: What remains? –
Insights for the future of the Linden-Museum

Laboratories are experimental fields of utopian thinking. In seven LindenLABs on the topics of provenance, participation and presentation, we have tried out a lot over the last four years. In conclusion, however, questions remain: What exactly did we test? What remains of this experiment? What will we discard? How can the project be transferred to museum work in the long term? And how do we meet a multifaceted social demand as an ethnological museum?


With LAB 8, we make findings from the LindenLAB visible once again in the museum. Experiences and ideas for the further development of the museum are outlined in five thematic areas at selected locations. The exhibition intervention can be seen at various locations in the permanent exhibition as well as in the foyer and checkroom area.
