Alternative historiography as an anti-imperialist museum tour
For centuries, the West has robbed communities around the world of their cultural and material worlds, removing them from their contexts and transforming them into collectable, exchangeable objects. Untoured questions the imperialist practices of Western museums and rewrites their narratives with alternative stories. An unconventional audio tour that questions the power to define meaning with selected artefacts from the Pergamonmuseum and the Deutsches Historisches Museum Berlin and thereby offers alternative historiographies.
