Blind Spots: Images of the Danish West Indies colony

To mark the centenary of the sale of the Danish West Indies, The Royal Library is putting on a large exhibition about the visual cultural history of the islands. The exhibition focuses on images and postcards in Danish archives and collections. And asks what the images from the island actually show – and what one is unable to see.

The exhibition focuses on the visual material that is in the library: maps, postcards, photographs, newspapers, etc. The historical material is displayed alongside works by the visual artists Jeannette Ehlers, Nanna Debois Buhl and La Vaughn Belle, all of whom work with the presentation of Denmark's colonial past.
