National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden
The dominant discourse of the 19th and 20th centuries, in which western scholars were seen as beholding the 'ultimath truth' in interpreting heritage and collections, is now subject to much criticism. It is this ongoing discussion on the contested nature of objects (particularly ownership) that is the subject of the programme, which will consist of panels, lectures and visits.
Participation is by invitation only.
