Special: Herdenking slavernijverleden

Last year, we paused just before the start of the Commemoration Year of the Dutch Slavery Past to reflect on this jubilee year. This year, we look back and forward through the lens of two films: The Black Pete Files by Festus Toll and Asema by Loëlle Monsanto. With them, we discuss the importance of art in processing, remembering, and acknowledging history.

The evening will begin with a keynote from Peggy Brandon, curator and pioneer of the Dutch National Slavery Museum in formation. Following this, there will be a panel discussion with the filmmakers, Peggy Brandon, and Marlon Titre, director of Filmhuis Den Haag.

Moderation will be led by Maurice Seleky.
