Artists from different backgrounds and museum staff connect the stories of the objects with their own stories. The uniqueness of the objects draws attention to the uniqueness of the people. In performative scenes, they present the museum as a collection of traces of the history of people’s movements and their artworks or utensils that travelled through continents and times with or without them. In doing so, they ask questions about their origins and critically reflect on the possibility of their return.

This theatrical evening that progresses through various stations is put on by the Badluck group. In recent years, this group has appeared at the Theater Nestroyhof Hamakom with three theatre productions on reasons why people flee their countries and the experiences of refugees in Austria.
