12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art

Panel: Ciraj Rassool, Deneth Piumakshi Veda Arachchige, and Uta Kornmeier. Moderation: Sophie Schasiepen. More than Remains. Addressing the Legacies of Racial Science

Panel held within the framework of the conference From Restitution to Repair on September 10, 2022 at Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg, Berlin.

What is at stake when we talk about the return of people whose bodies are held in museum, academic, and private collections and were appropriated by explorers, doctors, military, settlers, and the like, in order to construct, uphold, and extend a racist order? The panelists will discuss the aims of such negotiations from different academic, artistic, and activist perspectives.
