RCMC Annual Conference
30 Nov – 1 Dec 2017

To bring attention to Tropenmuseum’s diverse sound collections and the knowledge and histories that are embedded in these collections, Research Center for Material Culture and RE:VIVE announce their Unlocking Sounds collaboration featuring new EPs from three leading contemporary artists.

In concert with Keti Koti - the Emancipation Day (end of slavery) in Suriname - the Tropenmuseum will organise an annual distinguished public lecture and debate around the theme of Slavery, Colonialism and Their Afterlives within Contemporary Dutch Society.
