Multaka. Refugees present the museum
What stories are hidden behind the objects in the Bernisches Historisches Museum and how can we relate them to the present day? How can we look at familiar things with new eyes, or approach things that are “alien” to us? With questions like these people who arrived as forced migrants have been acting as guides through selected areas of the museum’s history, ethnography and archaeology sections since April 2019, raising with visitors such issues as culture, history, shared cultural heritage, migration and flight. The interactive visits take their cue from the personality of each Multaka guide, their place of origin and their personal associations with the items selected.
