Traces of Slavery and Colonial History in the Art Collection - edition 1

The Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands searched its collection for traces of slavery and colonial history. This publication presents the results of this pilot study with a report of how the research was done, and a virtual exhibition of 25 objects, each described by three different authors.

Note to the first edition

In this first edition the word ‘slave’ was still used in a few places, while nowadays it is increasingly being replaced by ‘enslaved’. In consultation with the authors, this has been adjusted in the second edition.  We have taken the opportunity to make some minor corrections at the same time.
