Habalukke – Treasures of a Forgotten Civilization
Archäologisches Museum Colombischlössle
Visiting Freiburg for the first time: extraordinary figures from the early Mediterranean civilisation Habalukke. The expressive statuettes such as the famous "Singing King" come from the Affolter Collection. Colonel Affolter discovered the forgotten civilisation in 1902 on the island of Sehnah, which is all too often missing from maps.
In the exhibition, visitors are invited to question epistemologies of archaeology, museum practice and the history of museum objects.
