Atlas der Abwesenheit: Kameruns Kulturerbe in Deutschland
Today, more than forty thousand objects from Cameroon are stored in public museums in the Federal Republic of Germany - the largest holding worldwide. Since the German colonial period (1886-1916), they have hardly been exhibited or made accessible in publications. For the first time, the authors trace this invisible presence of Cameroon in German museums. At the same time, their findings also explore the meaning of the absence of cultural heritage for Cameroon.
Numerous maps, charts and graphics illustrate the geographical and statistical distribution of Cameroon's material cultural heritage in Germany. They are supplemented by biographies of the actors of the time and an image section with photos of the objects.
