abstract
At the end of the 19th century, four groups of indigenous people were taken from Chile by a German businessman and were shown as animals in different fairs and public exhibitions in several Europeans cities, including Berlin, Leipzig, and symbolic places such as the area surrounding the Eiffel Tower.The Human Zoo retraces the disturbing and moving journey of the abducted natives and surprises with every new discovery - including the remains of five members of the Kawesqar culture found at the Anthropological Department of the University of Zurich.
