Who Were They? : An Exhibition on Human Remains Stolen From Southern African Graves
Developed with support of ICOM in 2017 by Dr Jeremy Silvester of MAN and former CAM intern Paige Linner. This exhibition seeks to educate and open a discussion about these issues by asking the questions: Who bought and sold human remains? Why? Who benefited and who suffered? What can we do today to address these historic wrongs and prevent future horrors? Where human remains should be returned – to grave-sites or new Keeping Places? What policies or guidelines can we develop to honour our departed? The exhibition will travel to the workshop in Gaborone in March 2019 and be available throughout the region in order to educate the people on these issues.
