Fragments—Repaired Pots, Patchworks, Power Figures

Museum der Kulturen Basel
Ongoing Event
Fri., 29 April until Sun., 22 January

The collections of the Museum der Kulturen Basel contain numerous fragments that bear witness to practices of sharing and connecting. They include fragments from history, remnants of destruction, and once-powerful objects made up of single parts. The exhibition shows how these things were handled in the past, and still are today. It sheds light on what it means to divide, repair, reassemble, even to let something fall apart. In any event, it is always a matter of newly creating or restoring order.
