Familiarising the Colony: Distance and Proximity in Dutch and German Colonial Photography and Visual Culture. Organised as a Dutch-German collaboration between Leiden University and the University of Cologne, this workshop on colonial photography and visual culture took place in early July 2021.

Familiarising the Colony: Distance and Proximity in Dutch and German Colonial Photography and Visual Culture

The workshop focused on European colonial photography and visual culture more broadly between 1850 and 1950, investigating the diverse ways in which photography was used to create a sense of familiarity between the colonies and the metropole. Moreover, the specific functions of colonial photography not only for familiarising the colony, but also with respect to the long-term effects of colonial visualities and the legitimisation and spread of racist stereotypes were addressed during the workshop. While the workshop included researchers from all stages of their academic careers who presented their most recent academic working papers, one panel featured artistic perspectives on colonial visuality.

The aim of a first exhibition on the Dutch slave trade to be shown at the Rijksmuseum, launched on Tuesday by King Willem-Alexander, is not to be “woke” but to be a “blockbuster” telling a truer story of the Golden Age, the director general of the national institution has said.

Taco Dibbits said his museum had no intention of taking sides in a political and cultural debate but that the royal visit, broadcast live on national television, highlighted that the wealth bestowed and cruelty endured is not just relevant to the descendants of those enslaved. “I think, I mean obviously you would have to ask [Willem-Alexander] yourself, but I think with that he emphasises that this is part of our history that concerns all people in the Netherlands and not only the descendant of a slave”, said Dibbits.

These 17th-century records concern the full range of government functions including relations with native inhabitants, particularly the Mohawks, Mahicans, and various groups around New Amsterdam and the Delaware River. Extraordinarily detailed, these records contain a wealth of information about the people of New Netherland, with great potential for biographical and genealogical research. When using these records it helps to understand the Dutch system of recordkeeping as well as the organization of these records.

The Rise and Fall of the Dutch Colonial Empire. The People of Dutch East Indies (1940) Slave narratives from Dutch colonisation in Indonesia. By Karen Williams In 1657, five years after the start of Dutch colonialism in South Africa, an indigenous man, Doman, was sent to the Dutch “prize colony” of Batavia, present-day Jakarta.

Slave narratives from Dutch colonisation in Indonesia

The Dutch colonisers who had landed in South Africa wanted to acquaint him with Dutch culture as well as help him to improve his Dutch-language skills. Doman was a Khoi man and his Khoi name is believed to be Nommoa. Until then the Dutch had used him as an interpreter and believed him to be completely friendly with the Dutch and supportive of their colonialist aims.

Thousands of pieces of art deemed looted by Dutch colonialists could be returned to their country of origin after the Netherlands’ most famous museums backed a report proposing a wholesale “recognition and rectification of these injustices”. The directors of the Rijksmuseum and Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam said they would support the proposal made on Tuesday for a legal structure for the return of an estimated 100,000 pieces where a claim for restitution could be made, with the emphasis on return where “involuntary loss” is identified. Among the exhibits cited by the report from the Dutch Council of Culture as needing examination is a 70-carat diamond that belonged to the Sultan of Banjarmasin and was sent to the Netherlands after his land, now part of Indonesia, came under Dutch control at the end of the 19th century. The diamond is on display in the Rijksmuseum.
