Animal Tales

From 1 July 2022
Animal Tales

The objects in this exhibition, collected by professor Theo van Baaren (1912 - 1989), tell stories in which animals play a central role. The origins of Van Baaren’s large collection are inextricably linked to the colonial past of The Netherlands.

The exhibition Animal Tales, organised as part of the cultural manifestation Bittersweet Heritage, researches the origin of various objects and their stories, and reflect on the possibility that they may eventually return to their home.
