Ghana Thuis: Video Portraits

As part of the ongoing conversation, Diasporic Connections: Ghana 60 Years After, we made short video portraits with several Ghanaian-Dutch people. Starting from Ghanaian objects in the Tropenmuseum collection, we spoke about heritage, belonging, African diaspora, cultural appropriation and senses of home. The participants chose objects from the collection that were meaningful to them and brought objects from their homes that represented Ghana for them. A collaborative exhibition where the video portraits are on display at the Imagine IC exposition space in the OBA Bijlmerplein. There are now available below (in Dutch).
