The exhibition is based on a unique, ten-year research and preservation project, initiated and led by representatives of Indigenous communities from the Central and Western Deserts in partnership with the National Museum of Australia and the Australian National University. Songlines was collaboratively curated by Margo Neale, Senior Indigenous Curator of the National Museum, and an Indigenous Curatorium from Martu Country, the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands and the Ngaanyatjarra Lands..
In over 300 paintings and objects, six large installations, numerous films, photographs and multimedia stations, the story of the Seven Sisters comes alive.
First shown in Canberra in 2017 the exhibition has since traveled to Perth (Australia) and Plymouth (UK). In Berlin, Songlines is presented by the Stiftung Humboldt Forum in partnership with Berlin’s Ethnologisches Museum.
