Nieuw Licht: het Rijksmuseum en de Slavernij (New Light: the Rijksmuseum and Slavery)

What happens when the leading national museum focuses its gaze on the history of slavery and the Netherlands? “Nieuw Licht” is a highly topical documentary about the genesis of the slavery exhibition in the Rijksmuseum. This film shows – up close and personal – how painful and bitter, but at the same time healing and liberating, compiling the exhibition was. In “Nieuw Licht” we can see what it means when a museum reinvents itself.
