In a conversation with curators and researchers based in Basel we will explore the presence and agency of things. The focus is on the contexts of their making and migration, their roles as mediators between different worlds, their changing functions and meanings along their ways. We follow their traces and impact in current debates on decolonization and restitution from different perspectives.
