The Seeder, Museum of the History of Immigration in Catalonia.

The seeder is a container carved in wood that is used to sow in a straight line and in parallel, both in small orchards and in home gardens. It is one of the objects that links the MhiC collection with the migrations of the global era and the 21st century. It was brought to the museum by a street vendor of Senegalese origin who explains that there are people who buy it without knowing what it is used for, turning it into a decorative object. It is an example that objects have a life of their own and of the confluence of knowledge and practices that they represent.
