DECODING THE ATLANTIC WORLD
‘Decoding the Atlantic World’ questions our understanding of maritime history and the role it plays in the past, present and future by giving it new meaning. This art-installation is a collaboration between artists Raul Balai, Jarrett Erasmus and Sites of Memory founders Jennifer Tosch and Katy Streek and shares stories about a number of countries around the Atlantic ocean that were colonized by the Netherlands.
The history that connects these countries is often viewed through a 'western lens'. That's not the only way to look at it. ‘Decoding the Atlantic World’ focuses on symbols and stories of resistance and shares them from the perspective of contemporary artists, dancers, poets and musicians.
Dates 2022: 1 July Opening - to be visited till the end of December 2022 at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.
