Ancre de bateau Sama

Presentation of Sama objects from the MEG collection. Sunday 26 March 2023 at 11 am. In French only

On the occasion of the BiblioWeekend 2023, a weekend dedicated to libraries throughout Switzerland, whose theme is "Setting Sail", let us discover the objects of the Sama people (South-East Asia) in the MEG collection and the story of their arrival in the Museum. The Sama (800,000 people) live mostly in villages on stilts, but some still maintain their original and unique way of life: life in dugout canoes (leppa).
The objects will be visible all day in the library.
Programme of the day
The library will be exceptionally open this Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm
Speakers: Nicolas Rossier, art dealer; Damien Kunik, Asia curator at MEG
