Amazonia – Native Americans of the rainforests and the savannas

Friday, September 25th, 2009

The Japanese Palais presents this special exhibition on an area of 800 sq.m. with an overview of the different cultural landscapes in Amazonia. It thematises not only the origins and distinctivness but also the current situation of the natives of Amazonia. The exhibits come explicitly from Saxon collections. Next to cultural witnesses of long lost tribal cultures one can see pieces of tribes which were contacted for the first time just a few years ago. One basic concern of the exhibition is to point out that the preservation of the cultural diversity is very important, since the many small tribal cultures of the Amazonia also belong to the cultural heritage of humankind. 29th April 2009 to 27th March 2010
