New exhibition

Colonisation – what is it?

Colonisation – what is it really? Researchers have been working on this concept for a long time, and the Museum will now, in our own way, shed light on some of the aspects around it in this new exhibition..

We are planning a new exhibition showing objects from the old colonies and will raise some important questions around the theme. Knut Rio and Frode Storås have academic responsibility, Katrine Lund and Judy Sirks are exhibition developers. The project is part of the national collaborative programme "Cooperative Research", sub-project: Dissemination, financed by the Norwegian Research Council and the University Museum of Bergen.
