metaphysics of presence is, for example, the “ethnological present,” the tense of the former conventional field research reports that undertook to describe the specific present of the other.12 Also of relevance here is the discussion, ignited by Michael Fried in the 1960s, about the concept of the “presence” of works of Mini- mal Art. Fried criticized as “presence” the experience of metaphysical, corporeal alienation, and thus an inappropriate—because it is “indeterminate, open-ended— and unexacting”—relation between the viewer and the work. However, “presence

[…] The ar t of at least half the races of the world has thus found its way into ethnological museums.«48 In Ethnologiemuseen, so Balchs Beobachtung, falle es schwer, den Kunstcha- rakter von Objekten angemessen zu würdigen und zu beschreiben. Balch ver- mutete als Ursache die Laienhaftigkeit vieler Ethnologen in Hinblick auf Kunst sowie das Desinteresse der Kunstkritik an Ethnologie.49 In Dahlem wurde auf die

The result is that they are rarely either measurable or comparable with one another and they fail to give that precise information respecting the proportions and the
