Museum der Kulturen Basel

25 Oct 201415 Oct 2019

The permanent exhibition focuses on cultural appropriation and transformation processes and aims at displaying the differences in daily uses of goods and technology, in beliefs, political ideas and religion across the whole world. By using ten stations within the exhibition, the show presents how worldwide routines and rituals are established in new settings, and how they become gradually absorbed and creatively woven into new cultural contexts. The stations address different themes, such as upcycling, fashion, religious interrelationships and (hi)stories of global economic entanglement.
