VolkswagenStiftung presse@volkswagenstiftung.de no Open Access - Chance oder Ausverkauf? Expertengespräch im Rahmen der Tagung KUNST AUF LAGER VolkswagenStiftung KUNST AUF LAGER Bei der Tagung vom 11.-12. September in Hannover trafen Museumsverantwortliche mit Förderern, Wissenschaftler(inne)n und der Öffentlichkeit für einen Diskurs über die Herausforderungen des Kulturguterhalts zusammen. Was wäre ein Museum ohne seine Sammlung? KUNST AUF LAGER, das Bündnis zur Erschließung und Sicherung von Museumsdepots, möchte Aufmerksamkeit für die drängenden und zukunftsweisenden Herausforderungen des Kulturerhalts schaffen. Durch gezielte Förderungen tragen die Bündnispartner(innen) zur Erschließung, Erforschung und Sicherung ausgewählter Werke und Objekte in Museen in Deutschland bei. Das Expertengespräch "Open Access – Chance oder Ausverkauf?" fand im Rahmen der Session 3 - Wunderkammer digital: Potentiale der Bestandserschließung statt, es moderierte die Journalistin Shelly Kupferberg, Berlin. Expertengespräch: Open Access – Chance oder Ausverkauf? Hanns-Peter Frentz, Leiter, bpk Bildagentur Preußischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin Dr. Christoph Lind, Direktor, rem Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte, Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen, Mannheim / Präsident, ICFA (ICOM - International Committee for Museums and Collections of Fine Arts) Prof. Dr. Gerald Maier, Vizepräsident, Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg / Bundesratsbeauftragter für Digitalisierung und Online-Zugänglichkeit kulturellen Materials und dessen digitaler Bewahrung Silke Oldenburg, Leiterin Marketing, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg Foto: Shelly Kupferberg, Silke Oldenburg, Hanns-Peter Frentz, Prof. Dr. Gerald Maier, Dr. Christoph Lind (v.l.n.r.). (Philip Bartz für VolkswagenStiftung) Mit der Tagung KUNST AUF LAGER soll ein intensiver Diskurs zwischen Expert(inn)en und den Verantwortlichen für die Sammlungen, aber auch in der interessierten Öffentlichkeit angeregt werden: Der gesellschaftliche Wert von Kulturgütern in öffentlichen Sammlungen ist immens. Es zählt zum Auftrag der Museen, diese für die künftigen Generationen zu bewahren und die gesammelte kulturelle Geschichte und ihre Wandlungen zu erforschen. KUNST AUF LAGER wirbt für mehr Anerkennung und Verständnis für diese Aufgabe, die die Basis für eine qualitative Ausstellungs- und Vermittlungsarbeit der Museen ist. Damit wird auch die Kulturpolitik aufgefordert, den Förderfokus nicht nur auf prestigeträchtige Sonderausstellungen zu richten, sondern ebenso Investitionen in die weniger populären Museumsleistungen, auf Infrastrukturmaßnahmen sowie die bislang verborgenen Schätze in den Depots als gesellschaftlich relevant anzusehen. Die Tagung KUNST AUF LAGER zieht eine Zwischenbilanz der Bündnisarbeit, stellt einzelne durch das Bündnis geförderte Projekte vor und blickt nach vorne auf zukünftige Herausforderungen der Sammlungserschließung und des Kulturerhalts. Zielgruppe waren vor allem Verantwortliche aus dem Bereich Museen und Sammlungen, aus wissenschaftlichen Institutionen, aus dem Bereich der Förderung von Museumsarbeit und der Erschließung von Kulturgütern, Mitarbeiter(innen) aus dem öffentlichen Dienst, die sich beruflich dem Thema widmen, sowie die interessierte Öffentlichkeit. PROGRAMMÜBERSICHT Session I: Depotware als Impulsgeber: Museumsstrukturen in Bewegung Session II: Vom Keller ins Rampenlicht: Restaurierung statt Neuerwerb Session III: Wunderkammer digital: Potentiale der Bestandserschließung Session IV: Chancen durch Wissenszuwachs Session V: Sammlungen stärken.

New empirical approaches of labour studies in different world regions were the center of this symposium in Hanover in June 2017. How can we arrive at global perspectives on labour, which reach beyond teleologies of a all-encompassing "race to the top" (or "to the bottom"), but also beyond the notion of everincreasing differentiation? This symposium explored overarching trends in the political as well as corporate regulation and in the forms of collective organisation of labour. Such an exploration is understood as a precondition for an adequate analysis of the dynamics of current capitalism. It needs to be based on an examination of linkages and similarities, differences and unevenness, as well as on the wide variety of work constellations resulting from such trends in different parts of the world. Towards this aim, the symposium brought together scholars from the social and historical sciences who are prepared to leave the comfort zone of highly specialized area studies, in a common quest for transnational perspectives. The global economic crisis of the mid-1970s functioned as a common point of reference, connecting post-war developments to the immediate pre-history of present constellations. The conference comprised three sessions: - Political Regulation of Labour: Trends and Contradictions - Labour at the Site of Production: Labour Process, Control, Quality of Work - Politics of Labour: Collective Action A conference summary will be published on https://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/nc/veranstaltungen/veranstaltungsarchiv/detailansicht-veranstaltung/news/detail/artikel/workers-of-the-world/marginal/5136.html.

At the conference, the experts discussed how the humanities and social sciences deal with the social challenges of digitization. The introductory words are held by Florian Süssenguth, acatech, Germany. The Herrenhausen Conference "Society through the Lens of the Digital" explored the role of the social sciences and the humanities in a society saturated with debates on the effects of digitization: Parties, NGOs and the public sphere explore ideas of digital democracy. Luminaries of business try to map and unlock the potential of big data and of platform capitalism. Data journalists experiment with modes of describing the world not through linear texts but through algorithms and interactive visualizations while intelligent systems have to learn to navigate the often-ambiguous rules and structures of society. We're lacking scientific approaches to this multiplicity of discourses on digitization, which allow us to adequately explore its implications for research, research policy and the public role of the social sciences and humanities. The Herrenhausen Conference "Society through the Lens of the Digital" aimed to fill this gap. As a forum for debate between scholars and experts from civil society, politics, economy and journalism the conference tackled questions such as: What role should the social sciences and the humanities play in the digitization of society? Which kind of answers are they expected to provide? How can they better fulfil their role as mediators and translators between the conflicting and sometimes even incommensurable perspectives on digital change? The discussion of theoretical, methodological and empirical tools thus was not only aimed at the further development of concepts and theories within the social sciences and humanities. Equally important was the question of how they can help the social sciences and humanities to open up to collaboration with the STEM fields and to help solve the grand challenges of digitization. Herrenhausen Conference "Society through the Lens of the Digital" May 31 - June 2, 2017, Herrenhausen Palace, Hanover, Germany Organizers Prof. Dr. Armin Nassehi, University of Munich, Germany, Florian Süssenguth, acatech, Germany, Dr. Cornelius Puschmann, Hans-Bredow-Institute Hamburg, Germany Conference Topics at a Glance - Society through the Lens of the Digital - from Observation to Theory - Radical Democracy or the Liquefication of all Collectivities? - The Political Teleologies of Digital Media - Updating Social Criticism: Digital Capitalism and Digital Labour - Society through the Eyes of Robots, Algorithms and AI - Sources of Knowledge and Uncertainty: Coping with Digital Information Overload in Science and Business - Identity in Times of Algorithms - Quantified Self and Gamification - Observing the Digital World Society within Local Contexts - Observing the World through Hermeneutics or through Algorithms?

VolkswagenStiftung Der Vortrag von Yasemin Karakaşoğlu wurde auf dem Herrenhäuser Symposium "Umbruch durch Migration? Ein Neustart für die Selbstreflexion in Wissenschaft und Demokratie" gehalten, das vom 16.bis 17. März 2017 im Tagungszentrum Schloss Herrenhausen in Hannover stattfand. Bericht zur Veranstaltung PROGRAMM Sektion I: Flucht - Asyl - Zuwanderung: Eine historische Herausforderung für Deutschland? Sektion II: Selbstreflexionsraum Wissenschaft Öffentliche Abendveranstaltung: Zuwanderung - Eine Herausforderung für Politik und Gesellschaft in Deutschland (https://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/nc/veranstaltungen/veranstaltungsarchiv/detailansicht-veranstaltung/news/detail/artikel/schaffen-wir-das-die-zuwanderung-nach-deutschland/marginal/5205.html) Sektion III: Narrative des Fremden und Eigenen: "Imagined Communities" Sektion IV: Transfer in die Gesellschaft: Modelle guter Praxis aus Schule und Hochschule Sektion V: Eine historisch neue Situation: Perspektiven für Forschung und Lehre Die aktuellen Migrationsbewegungen stellen die deutsche Gesellschaft vor völlig neue Herausforderungen. Die Wissenschaft auch? Ob hier ein Neustart nötig ist, diskutierten Experten vom 16.-17. März 2017 in Hannover. Seit Herbst 2015 sind die verstärkten Flüchtlingsbewegungen nach Europa Thema in der Gesellschaft, in Wissenschaft und Politik. Auch wenn die Zahl der neu ankommenden Asylsuchenden inzwischen gesunken ist, so hat diese jüngste Migration im politischen Gefüge der Europäischen Union, im deutschen Parteiensystem und in der deutschen Gesellschaft zu tiefgreifenden Verwerfungen geführt. Breiter Hilfsbereitschaft stehen Frustration, Wut und offener Hass gegenüber. Mahnungen zur Besonnenheit stoßen auf Aufforderungen zur Konfrontation. In der Bevölkerung breitet sich zunehmende Ratlosigkeit aus, wie sich der Ausbreitung eines radikalen Islamismus einerseits und einer neuen Welle von Nationalismus und Fremdenfeindlichkeit wirkungsvoll begegnen lässt. Diese Frage stellte sich auch schon in den frühen 1990er Jahren, als Fremdenfeindlichkeit in offene Gewalt umschlug, die in den Ausschreitungen in Rostock-Lichtenhagen 1992 ihren traurigen Höhepunkt fand. Die VolkswagenStiftung reagierte darauf seinerzeit mit den Förderinitiativen "Das Fremde und das Eigene - Probleme und Möglichkeiten interkulturellen Verstehens" und "Konstruktionen des Fremden und des Eigenen: Prozesse interkultureller Abgrenzung, Vermittlung und Identitätsbildung". Neu ist heute, dass die verstärkte Zuwanderung nach Deutschland und Europa in kürzester Zeit Menschen aus vielen Weltregionen, unterschiedlichen Kulturen, Ethnien und Religionen in Aufnahmeländern mit teils ganz anderen Traditionen, Verfassungen und Rechtssystemen zusammenführt. Das zwingt nicht nur das politische System in Deutschland, sondern auch die Wissenschaft dazu, neue Denkräume zu erschließen. Das Herrenhäuser Symposium will dazu einen Beitrag leisten. Wie kann ein neues Miteinander gestaltet werden? Die Veranstaltung wendete sich an Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler aus den Gesellschafts- und Kulturwissenschaften ebenso wie an Vertreterinnen und Vertreter zivilgesellschaftlicher Initiativen und der Politik.

But focusing on them can lead us to underestimate a larger and more broad-based phenomenon of unsettlement and restabilization that operated in the more abstract arena of macroeconomic forces. Between 1919 and the mid-1920s a gigantic cycle of inflation and deflation rocked the world economy. Here too a politics of stabilization was at work. It is one that operated in a classically counter-revolution fashion against the left and organized labor. But it also served to contain the more violent forces of the nationalist right-wing. It is precisely in this sphere that a liberal politics of stabilization was at its most powerful and effective. Adam Tooze is Professor of History at Columbia University. Previously, he was Professor at Yale University (2009 - 2015) and Director of International Security Studies at the University of Cambridge (1996 - 2009). He is an Invited Commission Member of the Ministerial Research Project “History of the Reichsministerium der Finanzen in the Third Reich”. In 2002, he won the book prize for modern history with his work on “Statistics and the German state 1900-1945: The making of modern economic knowledge”. Moreover, he is the author of “The Wages of Destruction. The Making and Breaking of the Nazi Economy” (2006). His latest publication “The Deluge: The Great War and the Remaking of the Global Order 1916-1931” was published in 2014 and won the LA Times History Prize.

When revolution came to East, events contradicted the ideology. The Bolshevik revolution seemed to deny Marx’s famous dictum of ‘the country that is more developed industrially only shows, to the less developed, the image of its own future.’ Based on a divergent mode of capitalist development from the ‘West’, the Russian revolution represented ‘a revolution against Karl Marx’s Capital.’ However, revolution in Russia was not a derivative one wherein the historical authenticity of the Marxian revolution in the developed capitalist countries is tested. Viewed from entangled histories of capitalism, colonialism, nationalism and socialism as competing visions of the global modernity, the Bolshevik revolution was the field of political contests of those competing visions. As the development of the global socialism showed in the twentieth century, socialism was not consequent to capitalism but constitutive of it. Confronting subaltern everydayness, all that solid division of the revolution and counterrevolution, and colonial modernity and national subjectivity melts into the air. This is to trace the socialist revolution moving to East from the combined optic of the global modernity and local everydayness with a spatial stress on Asia.

Whilst common anti-war and anti-art sentiments are understood as uniting these centers, Dada activity in each location is customarily defined in terms of distinguishing characteristics. Zurich Dada is therefore seen as having an aesthetic tendency (in the direction of abstraction) whilst the Berlin group is considered more politically engaged. This paper seeks to challenge the too-easy separation between aesthetics and politics in accounts of Dada that has been encouraged by the above model. At the same time, it aims to challenge the model of static Dada locations and to promote a dynamic notion of Dada as constituted primarily by the principle of dissemination. The paper will look closely at a series of interactions between key Dada figures in far-flung locations. It will aim to show that magazines, letters or telegrams between these individuals are as much manifestations of Dada as anything else, and that, in line with this fluidity of communication, Dada is pledged to dissolving fixed notions of identity and place, as well as hard-and-fast distinctions between ‘aesthetics’ and ‘politics’. On this reading Dada’s distrust of borders (both geographic and conceptual) may in the end be seen as its most revolutionary impulse. David Hopkins is Professor of Art History and Director of Institute of Art History at the University of Glasgow. His main research areas are Dada, Surrealism, Ernst, Duchamp as well as selected aspects of post-1945 art and photography. He is the author of the following books: “Virgin Microbe: Essays on Dada” (2013, co-edited with Michael White), “Dada’s Boys: Masculinity After Duchamp” (2007), “Dada and Surrealism: A Very Short Introduction” (2004).

Labor historians, mostly focusing on nation states, have studied strikes and social movements, while others have discussed the revolutionary, social and consumer protests of this phase. What we still need, however, are globally oriented studies of these important years. My paper employs a micro historical and space sensitive approach focused on the struggle about local order. In the phase of global upheaval, roughly between the 1910s and mid 1920s, not only hopes for revolution but on a massive scale also fears and imaginaries of threat surfaced. These fears (and also the hopes) were mostly about social change and about possible revolutions - the latter often inspired by the Russian Revolutions and later by the German Revolution. Transnational and translocal networks of communication, highly mobile intellectuals, and the network of shipping lines were instrumental in entangling these imaginaries of threat and order. The presentation will, firstly, study why the First World War evoked such fears and imaginaries of threat – even in countries which did not directly participate in the war (like Argentina). Secondly, the paper will argue that the threats and social tensions of these years were strongly influenced by confrontations between locally based models of order on the one hand and nation state based models of order on the other hand. These local-versus-central order contestations were rooted in a confrontation of and competition between diverse urban social movements (left and right), among which established trade unions and political parties were by far not the only players. Thirdly, the presentation will analyze why, globally, in 1919 these confrontations often escalated. Klaus Weinhauer is Professor of Modern History and teaches Transnational and Comparative History at Bielefeld University. He received his PhD and his Habilitation from Hamburg University. He held fellowships at Oxford University, at Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS), and at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) in Bielefeld. His research focuses on: transformations of the state (urban violence, security, policing, terrorism); labor history; history of protest and of social movements. He recently co-edited “Germany 1916-23. A Revolution in Context” (2015) and a special journal issue on “Terrorism, Gender, and History” (2014). Currently, he is working on a book about the phase of global upheaval between the 1910s and the mid-1920s.

What we still need, however, are globally oriented studies of these important years. My paper employs a micro historical and space sensitive approach focused on the struggle about local order. In the phase of global upheaval, roughly between the 1910s and mid 1920s, not only hopes for revolution but on a massive scale also fears and imaginaries of threat surfaced. These fears (and also the hopes) were mostly about social change and about possible revolutions - the latter often inspired by the Russian Revolutions and later by the German Revolution. Transnational and translocal networks of communication, highly mobile intellectuals, and the network of shipping lines were instrumental in entangling these imaginaries of threat and order. The presentation will, firstly, study why the First World War evoked such fears and imaginaries of threat – even in countries which did not directly participate in the war (like Argentina). Secondly, the paper will argue that the threats and social tensions of these years were strongly influenced by confrontations between locally based models of order on the one hand and nation state based models of order on the other hand. These local-versus-central order contestations were rooted in a confrontation of and competition between diverse urban social movements (left and right), among which established trade unions and political parties were by far not the only players. Thirdly, the presentation will analyze why, globally, in 1919 these confrontations often escalated.

My paper will deal with the intriguing question of how (post-) Ottoman actors responded to and navigated within a new world changed by the Bolshevik Revolution after 1917. A chaotic new world needed to be ordered with innovative configurations of current ideological trends in a time when many loyalties persisted together. Sources speak of an alliance between Turkish nationalism and Bolshevism after the revolution. The immediate impressions on the revolution must have prevalent effects on Turkish leaders’ future visions of order. After the war, Mustafa Kemal tried to get the support of Bolshevism from the very first moment he started organizing the “anti-imperialist” national movement and considered implementing its principles for the liberation of the country without endangering Islamic and Turkish traditions and values. But pragmatic consequences like getting material help and securing the northern borders constituted the greater part of this consideration. The idea of world revolution was sold to the Muslim world within an emballage of Pan-Islamism. The Bolsheviks wanted to use Ottoman leaders to organize an Islamic blended anti-colonial revolution against the Allied Powers mainly in Arabia and India, whereas the Ottoman leaders wanted to gain Bolshevik material support for the national movement in Anatolia. What was left from the Ottoman Empire after the WWI could be called a’raf, or purgatorio in Dante’s word, a place in between inferno and paradiso. This purgatory soon became a disputed field between the Anatolian independence movement headed by Mustafa Kemal, the war time leaders of the Unionist government, and the new Istanbul government, all competing to fill the power vacuum for the leadership of the emerging future state. During their struggle, how have competing leaders employed transnational entanglements (Bolshevism, World Revolution, Pan-Islam) against each other? Bolshevism and Panislamism provided supranational sources for the new national-identity-in-formation. My paper will examine how these sources were used during the formations of modern Turkey.

Against the background of the First World War and the hitherto unknown number of victims contemporaries sought to answer the question what the causes of this catastrophe had been. Wilson’s answer pointed to the suppression of nationalities: “This war had its roots in the disregard of rights of small nations and of nationalities which lacked the union and the force to make good their claim to determine their own allegiances and their own forms of political life.” Both the war and the Wilsonian moment provoked globally rising expectations of what a peace settlement after a totalized war would have to achieve. The hitherto unknown number of war victims which had to be legitimized through the results of the peace, ever radicalizing war aims, the ideal of a new international order which would make future wars impossible, as well as the new mass markets of public deliberations and the new relation between “international” and “domestic” politics in an age of mass media and democratic franchise: all these elements contributed to a massive disillusion and disappointment when the results of the peace settlements became obvious. Turning away from the new international order, which seemed to have lost its legitimacy very soon, paved the way to multiple revisionisms. Against this background my lecture will look at the period from 1917 to 1920 as a period of globally rising expectations – political and social as well as national and anticolonial expectations, often overlapping with each other and thereby reinforcing complexity. By departing from the classical chronological compartment of 1914 to 1918, our image of the war changes if we open our European narrative into a global one. Thus the end of the war becomes highly ambivalent. The beginning of the war in early August 1914 marked a common experience for millions over thousands of kilometers. Yet the end of the war was no longer a synchronic moment in history. If we follow the aura of the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, we focus on the end of war between states in Western Europe – while other wars continued or were about to start: in Ireland and Poland, where new nation states emerged in civil war or national war, in Eastern Europe as a whole, where the state war had already ended in 1917 and had transcended into a civil war, time and again overlapping with ethnic conflicts, that would continue into the early 1920s, in the Near and Middle East, in India, Asia and in many parts of Northern Africa. The formal end of the war gave way to a broad spectrum of new spaces of violence on a global level – wars of independence, ethnic cleansing, wars to revise terms of the peace-treaties – which transcend chronological compartment of 1914-1918.

She points out that “museums with wholly or partially ethnographical direction must, even more than now, have an important mission in promoting contacts between Swedish and non-Swedish cultures”. Muñoz looks as a curator at the history of the collection from a post-colonial perspective. Adriana Muñoz is curator for the Collections at the National Museums of World Culture. She studied history in Argentina and archaeology in Sweden. Since 1998 she has been working as curator and in charge of a number of exhibitions at the Etnografiska Museet i Gothenburg as well as at the Museum of World Culture. She has been exploring how categories have been constructed in Ethnographic museums in relationship to the Colonial period. She has been working with possibilities of de-colonial practices in museums.

She shares her ideas that base on four years on observing restitution processes with various continents. She therefore captures the present debate on the return of human remains and the restitution of objects in Germany. In the second part, Förster reflects on examples of repatriation from the past. Finally, she connects her analysis to present debates on restitution and the history of museum collections. Larissa Förster is a research associate at the Center for Advanced Studies Morphomata at the University of Cologne and spokesperson of the Working Group on Museums of the German Anthropological Association. Her PhD is on the memory of colonialism in Namibia and she co-curated the exhibition "Namibia – Germany: a shared/divided history. Resistance, violence, memory" (Cologne and Berlin, 2004/05). In her current research she links issues of postcolonial memorialisation practices in Africa to a critical study of the history of European museum collections by looking at why, when and how human remains from European museum collections are (or are not) repatriated to postcolonial nation states. Most recently she (co-)edited the volumes "Transforming Knowledge Orders: Museums, Collections and Exhibitions" (Paderborn, 2013) and "Afropolis. City, Media, Art" (Johannesburg, 2012).

She points out that the legal standards of the time when the objects were brought to Europe would have to be applied even today. But that leads to the dilemma that these legal standards do not fit the moral standards we would apply nowadays. At present, a problem for the legal return of objects lies in the traditional legal framework of the public international law and / or private law do not include clear procedures on how to replace objects to indigenous groups. Lenski presents different approaches like treaties and conventions trying to solve these problems. Sophie Lenski studied law in Berlin (Humboldt University), Rome and Paris and has been a researcher at the Humboldt University Berlin from 2005 to 2006. After her PhD in law at the Humboldt University Berlin, she did her legal traineeship in Berlin (at the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation), in Venice and Paris from 2005 to 2007. From 2007 to 2012 she has been a senior lecturer in Public Law at the University Bayreuth and the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich.
