For more than forty years, the Ethnographic Museum of the University of Zurich has held the Tibetan collections of Austrian mountaineers Heinrich Harrer (1912-2006) and Peter Aufschnaiter (1899-1973) and the expedition collections of Heinrich Harrer from the 1960s. On 17 May 1944 they reached the Tibetan plateau. Seven years later they left the city of Lhasa, each with its own collection of ethnographic everyday and ritual objects, numerous black and white photographs, hand-drawn maps and sketches, and hundreds of pages of diary entries and notes. For the first time, this exhibition establishes a link between these collections. This offers the opportunity to understand Harrer and Aufschnaiter as actors in specific historical constellations, embedded in networks of different relationships, and as a shortened cultural-historical map of Tibet.
