The term cultural heritage describes the material an inmatrial testimonies of generations of human kind. To protect them and to mediate the knowledge gained is one of the biggest missions, which will with increasing reconditioning of globalisation will also be relevant in a transnational context. The German UNESCO-Commission finds in the Resolution of June 2018, the "within Europe the tensions between separating national and uniting european narratives rise and that, therefore, a conversation has to be continuously upheld." The claim from the outside of the own cultural collective, to administer own cultural heritage, for exapmle when reclaiming cultural goods, that have been taken during the colonial era, adds to these tensions.

The Transcultural Museum - Perspectives
Prof. Dr. Marion Ackermann
Dresden State Art Collections | Director General
Particularly in view of the challenges posed by a society that is becoming increasingly diverse and perceived as drifting further apart, the museum as an institution must rethink and explore its social responsibility. As living archives and platforms as well as cultural mediators, museums can build bridges between society and culture. The collections of the historical association SKD, which mostly originate from different cultural and historical contexts, can create access for a broad public and also raise questions about how to deal with the cultural heritage of communities of origin. What does the museum of the future look like to reflect the transcultural present in which we live? What does a possible shared world heritage look like and what role does digitization play in this?

World Cultural Heritage and Cultural Heritage of the World - On Preservation and Responsibility
Prof. Dr. Hermann Parzinger
President of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation

In the center of Berlin, a special place of world cultures is being created with Museum Island and the Humboldt Forum in the rebuilt Berlin Palace. The Museum Island, with its outstanding houses and collections on the cultural history of Europe and the Middle East, grew out of a 19th-century vision. As a world cultural heritage site, we are preserving it for the future. Across the street at the Humboldt Forum, the center of Berlin is becoming a place of world cultures. Today, however, dealing with the cultures of the world presents us with completely new challenges that carry the potential to develop a new relationship to the world.

Provenance Research and the Treatment of Colonial Heritage
Dr. Markus Himmelsbach
Linden-Museum Stuttgart | Provenance Researcher & Curator

The question of the origin of objects from colonial contexts is increasingly attracting the attention of a broader public. But how can provenance research be exhibited and communicated? How can, should or must an ethnological museum deal with its colonial past and the heritage associated with it? The lecture will provide insights into the work of the provenance researcher and the exhibition "Difficult Heritage. Linden Museum and Württemberg under Colonialism".

Innovation and Attitude: Why Deutsche Werkstätten are still around after more than 120 years
Fritz Straub
Deutsche Werkstätten Beteiligungs GmbH | Managing Director

Founded in 1898, Deutsche Werkstätten revolutionised interior outfitting by radically changing the ways in which interiors were designed and furniture was built. With the founding of the first German garden city in Dresden-Hellerau in 1909, they also pioneered new forms of urban design and communal living. Today, the company is an international leader in exclusive interior outfitting. The cultural-historical significance and social responsibility, however, are still ever-present.
