The Humboldt Forum is the gateway to a journey around the world. With its distinctive approach towards bringing together diverse cultures and viewpoints, the Forum will provide new insights into key issues affecting the world both now and in the future, such as migration, religion, climate change and globalization. However, understanding and exploring this kaleidoscope of the world as a whole requires signposting to show us the right way on our journey.
The three members of the Steering Committee, Neil MacGregor, Hermann Parzinger and Horst Bredekamp, have thus asked internationally renowned scholars and museum experts from every continent to become involved with the Humboldt Forum, contributing points of view that are new to us and adding fresh impetus while further developing the direction and structure the content will take. George Abungu (Kenya), Rita Eder (Mexico), Wei Hu (China), Jyotindra Jain (India), Lee Chor-Lin (Singapore), Natalia Majluf (Peru) and Nazan Ölcer (Turkey) are just some of these specialists who will be advising the Humboldt Forum in coming years about selecting themes and working with the countries where exhibits originate from.
The international experts are visiting Berlin a second time for a conference from 24 to 26 April 2017. At the discussion Humboldt Forum: A Kaleidoscope of the World, which is open to the public, they will provide vibrant insights into their perspectives, experiences and approaches, in order to rethink and define the Humboldt Forum not only as an international forum which is accessible by the public at large, but also as a place where people can join in and learn more about the world.
Welcome address: Neil MacGregor, Head of the Steering Committee of the Humboldt Forum
