This exhibition tells the story of the Dutch Republic in the 17th and 18th centuries and explores the shaping of the Netherlands as a maritime nation.
I find the most interesting object to be the “famille noire-figure” of a standing African man made in China around 1720. It's made for the European market and based on western examples. The figure is is an intercultural composition of Western and Chinese assumptions about the imagination of the "other". Visit the exhibition to find out more.
This project was commissioned by my old colleagues of Rapenburg Plaza. The spatial design was made by Tom Postma Design
