To collect, to catalogue and to conserve were always reasons to go on exploratory expeditions. Everything that could not be collected and taken, was recorded in drawings or photos.

Kümin aimes to show the correlation between these two media and their ethnographic purpose. Still, not only the differences are important to her, also the common ground and the influences between each other.
