Bannkörbe, which can be translated as “charm baskets”, were a unique form of beekeeping technology, popular in northern Germany between the 17th and early 20th centuries. In addition to their nesting function, Bannkörbe were used to ward off evil spirits thanks to the strange masks that adorned them. Published by Spector Books, this book explores this tradition, which is deeply rooted in magical beliefs, and shows how it represents an unusual alternative to the modern beehive and the economic optimisation of beekeeping and honey harvesting. Combining text and image, Aladin Borioli presents a research project on the Bannkörbe that still exist today. The Swiss artist is thus continuing his research project entitled ‘Apian’, which has been using theoretical, iconographic and ethnographic methods to study the relationship between bees and humans since 2014.
