Forum: Human Remains in Museums and Collections. A Critical Engagement with the „Recommendations“ of the German Museums Association (2013)

Dear readers,

The right of museums to house, exhibit, and research human remains, in particular those from Indigenous peoples collected during colonial times, has been questioned und fundamentally challenged in many parts of the world for decades. This debate has also been led in the German museum community. In 2013, the German Museums Association (Deutscher Museumsbund, DMB) published the “Recommendations for the Care of Humans Remains in Museums and Collections”. At the end of that year, Larissa Förster and Sarah Fründt convened an interdisciplinary and international workshop to critically discuss these “Recommendations”. This discussion forum, also convened for H-Soz-Kult by Larissa Förster and Sarah Fründt, presents the results of the workshop with selected articles. The following texts have been published until now:
