The Brutish Museums: the Benin Bronzes, Colonial Violence and Cultural Restitution
Wed, 17 Nov 2021, 18:00 (GMT)
Organised by the Friends of the Pitt Rivers Museum and is part of the Museum's Radical Hope programme
The story of the Benin Bronzes sits at the heart of a heated debate about cultural restitution, repatriation and the decolonisation of museums. In The Brutish Museums, Dan Hicks makes a powerful case for the urgent return of such objects, as part of a wider project of addressing the outstanding debt of colonialism.
