“Negotiating Cultural Heritage. Making, Sustaining, Breaking, Sharing” – Panel Discussion (Audio)

On 24 April 2017, more than 80 participants took part in our event entitled “Negotiating Cultural Heritage. Making, Sustaining, Breaking, Sharing” at the Bode Museum in Berlin.
Drawing on the discussions of the annual conference “Making, Sustaining, Breaking: The Politics of Heritage and Culture” in Heidelberg in October 2016, the event addressed the following questions: Who decides what constitutes cultural heritage? What does cultural heritage mean in different national and regional contexts? Who can claim it as theirs, and who decides how it is preserved, displayed, or restored? How to share cultural heritage?

Panel discussion participants: Hannah Baader (chair), Ralph Bodenstein, Monica Juneja, Stefan Weber and Gerhard Wolf (from left to right).


The conversation started off with an introductory session, followed by a WeberWorldCafé and was concluded by a panel discussion of four experts.

This panel discussion, chaired by Hannah Baader (Kunsthistorisches Institut Florenz/Art Histories), took up some of the main issues and questions raised in the table discussions during the WeberWorldCafé.

At the beginning, each panelist gave an opening statement, before engaging in a discussion with each another. You can now find the audio recordings of these statements and the ensuing debate in this entry on our sister-blog: TRAFO – Blog for Transregional Studies.
