Petrus Camper Revisited
Based on his own research and religious beliefs, scientist Petrus Camper (1722-1789) was a fierce opponent of slavery and white supremacy. However, fellow scientists used Camper's work to justify supremacy and slavery.
In the exhibition Petrus Camper Revisited, organised as part of the cultural manifestation Bittersweet Heritage (18 February -12 September 2022), we examine Petrus Camper’s research from a 21st-century perspective. How do we approach his legacy today?
