This seminar was something I just randomly picked, and it was fascinating. David Gassett certainly earned the right to speak about Repatriation. He provided a bit of history on the origins of museums, history on the "acquisition" of museum objects, repatriation, and closed with recent activism. So glad I tuned in!
Good background and explanation. Well built presentation
An outstanding seminar. I learned so much, starting with the rise of museums and how they obtained their collections to the beginning of the concept of repatriation to the pros and cons. David presented great current examples. A thought-provoking and insightful seminar ...I have such a better understanding of repatriation and the meaning of "ownership".
While I had a vague idea about repatriation, this presentation really expanded my awareness and understanding. It was well presented with background context and real life cases studies. I would highly recommend it for those curious about the topic.
This was a very stimulating presentation which I thoroughly enjoyed and found thought provoking.
