Colloquium Provenance Research:

Artistic Provenance Research on a 'Gall Skull'

6 am

The event is a roundtable discussing different approaches to provenance research. The speakers will present their respective perspectives on a “Gall’s skull” from the Berlin Anatomy collection, which was examined as part of the artistic project ‘Who is ID8470?’ They ask what we can know, whether we need to know in this case, and why these Human Remains are not shown at the Humboldt Forum.
