Institute of Historical and Cultural Anthropology

Collection of material culture

The collection contains objects that have been purchased and donated over the years or that have been donated to the Institute in the course of study and research projects. Objects of everyday use from the past four decades are available there as cultural studies illustrative material: Pottery, models and traditional costumes which, due to their ideological interpretability during National Socialism, came to the then Tübingen "Institute for German Ethnology" can be found there. Thus the factual history documented in the depot must also be understood as an expression of the history of the subject.
