Loot - 10 stories

14 September 2023 until 7 January 2024

Exhibition

This activity has ended.

Suppose you are the director of a museum that houses art that was once stolen. How do you deal with it? Should you return it? Do you leave it there? And if you leave it there, are you as a museum complicit in looting?

A virtual journey

Loot - 10 stories shows stolen objects from 3 periods: art looted by French revolutionaries in 1795, art taken from Jewish owners by Nazis and colonial looted art. Using virtual reality, you will discover the history of these objects. Artist duo Jongsma + O'Neill use video installations and digital techniques to show the influence of this history today. What would happen if all the objects were returned to their rightful owners?

Reservation

Please note: Due to the limited capacity of the unique VR experiences within the exhibition, it is necessary to book a ticket online in advance.

Loot - 10 stories is curated by artist duo Jongsma + O’Neill in partnership with Stiftung Humboldt Forum, Stadtmuseum Berlin, the Etnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz.
