Dealing with colonial history and (post)colonial continuities is one of the major challenges of the Humboldt Forum. It will decisively shape the work of this cultural institution. In this volume, prominent, globally active museum experts who accompanied the Humboldt Forum in its creation have their say. With their contributions, they take part in international debates, such as the passionate debate about the provenance and restitution of ethnological collections.
