Our Colonial Inheritance

Colonialism is not a thing of the past. It has shaped the world: our physical, mental and personal world. Colonialism lives on to this day. In the exhibition 'Our Colonial Inheritance', we look at the Dutch colonial history and presence, in Indonesia, Suriname, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and many other countries. You will not get to see and hear the 'known' history, there is more to see and learn.

The exhibition shows how colonialism shaped the world of today, and how people endured colonialism. Learn how people tried to create their own lives, rebelled and remained in charge. Are you open to a multivoiced perspective?
