Suriname in the Picture

20190827_184953

Dit najaar (2019) staat Suriname, in Nederland, in verschillende tentoonstellingen centraal. In Amsterdam alleen al in de Nieuwe Kerk met De Grote Suriname tentoonstelling (begint 5 oktober), Museum van Loon met Aan de Surinaamse grachten (begint ook 5 oktober), In het Tropenmuseum junior Sabi Suriname (vanaf 12 oktober) en Arti et Amicitiae Brasa mi Ori (28 oktober).

Toevallig was ik kort geleden in Suriname voor een eigen onderzoek dat niets te maken heeft met deze tentoonstellingen.

Nationaal Archief en Paramaribo

In de zelfde periode waren er een aantal journalisten (o.a. Het Parool, NRC, Elsevier, AD, Volkskrant, VPRO) om door de Nieuwe Kerk te worden rondgeleid i.v.m. hun Grote Suriname tentoonstelling. Het verslag van OVT van de VPRO is inmiddels hier te beluisteren. https://www.vpro.nl/programmas/ovt/speel~RBX_VPRO_15688207~het-spoor-terug-de-grote-suriname-tentoonstelling~.html

Voor wie nieuwsgierig is. Hieronder is een impressie te zien van wat ik dit keer fotografeerde (het was mijn vierde bezoek). Het in de VPRO reportage genoemde Fort Zeelandia en het Suriname Museum (zelfde plek) is hierbij.

Tot zover de fragmenten van de wereld buiten het archief. Het archief had ook zo zijn genoegens.

About me:

In 2008 I was guest curator of the exhibition Black is beautiful. Rubens to Dumas. Important advisors: Elizabeth McGrath (Rubens and colleagues, Warburg institute Image of the Black in Western Art collection), Carl Haarnack (slavery in books), Elmer Kolfin (slavery in prints and paintings) en Adi Martis (contemporary art). Gary Schwartz made his research for The Image of the Black in Western Art available to me.

In 2017 I published a book about the black servants at the Court of the Royal Van Oranje family. More than a thousand documents have been found about their lives. (only in Dutch)
