  • Catalogue

    The catalogue is more than a conventional documentation on the collection. The objects have been staged as an actual parade. The illustrated book is impressive thanks to the beautiful composition of the figures and provides an interesting visual experience.

    The objects are also put into a classic ethnographic context: Cornelia Mallebrein, the guest curator of the exhibition, is an internationally renowned cultural anthropologist and considered a leading authority on the subject in the German-speaking world. Having spent long periods of time in the Bastar region, she is duly credited with systematically gathering data and conducting research on its art. On 6th July 2012 Ms. Mallebrein received the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany for her research and her dedication to the areas of cultural exchange and intercultural communication.
