List z Berlina od prof. Moniki Zin (członka PISnSŚ):

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

In the attachment to this mail is a song that the students of Indian art history at the Freie Universität Berlin (FU) have composed in an attempt to draw the attention of scholars of Indology as well as a wider academic and lay audience. It is our latest attempt to bring to their notice the disastrous situation in which the Department of South Asian Art History (Abteilung Kunstgeschichte Südasiens) finds itself in today. The Department - a part of the Institute of Art History following the cancellation of the chair for Indology - is scheduled for closure on 30th September 2014.

The closure of a department of Indology at any university is always a loss that affects us directly, but fortunately there are still more than ten chairs of Indology left in Germany.

However, according to an official survey (“Kleine Fächer”), there are only 1.33 professorships, i.e. departments of South Asian art history at German universities (the “0.33” refers to the chair of oriental art history at Bonn University; this professorship covers the art of South Asia, East Asia and the Islamic world). Cancelling the last full-fledged professorship for the art of South Asia would therefore be tantamount to killing an entire discipline.

That this decision has been taken in a city which – with much public support – has just embarked on the implementation of a project to build the ‘Humboldt-Forum’ makes it all the more startling. Art history institutes of all the universities in Berlin are anxious to be involved in the planning of this project and their respective universities are projecting themselves - in South Asia among other regions - as globally established think tanks that welcome and promote cultural diversity and the multifaceted histories of their prospective students and faculty members. At the same time, a subject focussing on the material testimonies of a region inhabited by one-seventh of world's population is simply struck off without much ado.

This not only severs a long-standing scholarly tradition that has won international acclaim for its ground breaking contributions to both South and Central Asian art history; it also makes it impossible to provide training for the very specialists whom, not just the Humboldt-Forum, but also other museums and institutions like the German Archaeological Institute will require in the coming decades to handle the collections of these institutions, research their material and present it to a wider audience in a wholly scientific manner. The FU’s present approach in this matter, together with the level of ignorance encountered in other official institutions in Berlin and across Germany, serve as evidence of both economic and intellectual inadequacy.

The makers of this momentous decision have still not fully realized the import of the step they have taken. Your letters of appeal to the President of the Freie Universität and / or Senate Administration for Education, Youth and Science [praesident@fu-berlin.de / Maria.Bering@senBJW.berlin.de], expressing your disapproval of the proposed closure may help change the situation.

As would your gesture of support by signing the enclosed petition:


Thanking you,


Monika Zin

Temporary Head of Department since 2010
