THE FUTURE OF LOOT at Mauritshuis in The Hague

14th September – 7th January 2024.

An innovative exhibition featuring original objects, physical and digital replica’s, plus film and virtual reality experiences.

Loot – 10 Stories, in collaboration with the Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss, the Stadtmuseum Berlin and the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin – Preußischer Kulturbesitz . Visitors to this innovative exhibition will be immersed in the compelling stories of looted art from three periods in history: art looted in the colonial period, art looted by French in 1795 and art stolen from its Jewish owners by the Nazis. Ten case studies will explore the past and future of objects in the collections of the Mauritshuis, three Berlin museums (Ethnologisches Museum, Stadtmuseum and Gipsformerei ), and the Musée des beaux-arts (Rennes, France). The exhibition will open at the Humboldt Forum in Berlin in spring 2024.
