Humboldt Lab Dahlem | Paradies der Kopfjäger

Exhibition Design & Media Production

For the Humboldt Lab program of the Ethnological Museum Dahlem we designed an exhibition with and about the former headhunting people of Naga. In mere 40 m² of space a multi-perspective installation of objects, films, interviews, photos and media tries to give insights into the then and now - and strives to have the visitor form her/his own view.


The controversial title 'headhunters' paradise' is actually a quote from a small monument in Nagaland. Here it addresses the search of identification of the mostly christian young generation of Nagas with their cultural past.
