Conversation with Stephanie Archangel, Junior Conservator History, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

In many paintings of the 17th century, dark-skinned people are depicted, often to enhance the exotic impression of the scenes. Such persons rarely constituted the main protagonists, were seldom individualized, and were often shown in a subordinate role.

In a series of five conversations, five aspects of Eurocentrism are discussed. Each conversation takes a work of art from the exhibition as its point of departure for the exploration of questions that are still relevant today.
