The next decade will see the emergence in the historical heart of Berlin of a unique centre for art, culture, science, and learning with significant global reach. It will be entirely dedicated to the dialogue between the cultures of the world and will act as a forum for debate and analysis of historical and current issues of global significance, viewed from a multitude of fresh perspectives.
The Humboldt Lab Dahlem (2012-2015) contributed to and enriched the plans put forward by the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst as they progress towards the opening of the Humboldt-Forum. The Lab did this by proposing its own set of specific questions and coming up with innovative solutions.
