West Asia and North Africa
From the west coast of Africa to the Central Asian steppes. This exhibition introduces art and culture from West Asia and North Africa. Listen to stories, watch film clips and take part in interactive programmes.
Berber for beginners
Berbers are the original inhabitants of North Africa. A book accompanies the show: ‘ ‘Berber for Beginners – The Other Morocco at the Tropenmuseum’ - in Dutch. It tells about Berber culture and the museum’s Berber collection, and is also a guide to the show.
TIP: The exhibition shows how different Muslim artists have approached Islamic law relating to the portrayal of people and animals. Look for these different approaches and see whether the period and region are different too.
