Restaurierung Holzfiguren - Museum Kabul

Contract partner: OEAFG - Österreich - Afghanistan Gesellschaft Country: Afghanistan Funding amount: € 12.667,00 Project start: 01.05.2004 End: 31.12.2004

Short Description:

Overall goal

Im Rahmen des Projektes werden 13 Holzstatuen im Nationalmuseum in Kabul restauriert. Diese zum Teil lebensgroßen Kafiristan- und Nuristan-Holzfiguren sind von hohem ethnographischen Wert. Sie fielen 2001 dem Bildersturm des Taliban durch Zerhackung zum Opfer und wurden danach nur 'laienhaft' restauriert.

Die jetztige Restaurierung wird durch den österreichischen Fachmann Mag. Rindler vorgenommen.

Durch die Teilnahme von Prof. Klimburg an der 'Wiedereröffnung' dieser Museumsstücke soll die Präsenz Österreichs herausgestrichen werden.

Dieses Projekt zeigt, dass die afghanische Haltung gegenüber dem kulturellen Erbe sehr positiv ist, und deutet somit an, dass etwas 'Normalität' im Alltag wiederkehrt.
