The South Seas – Dream and Reality

June 8th until February 2nd 2020

Sunshine, palm-fringed beaches and azure-blue sea: the travel reports of famous explorers and the portraits of artists still convey the image of the South Sea as a paradise on earth. The reality, however, is different: the people are experiencing the ripple effects of colonialism as well as the consequences of global climate change. With objects from its ethnological and natural science collection, the Museum Natur und Mensch is presenting a complex portrait of the region, its inhabitants and its history.
