Country series

The Rijksmuseum, in collaboration with Uitgeverij Vantilt, publishes the Country Series. On the basis of objects from the collection of the Rijksmuseum, this series explores the shared history of the Netherlands and various countries overseas. Behind objects from (pre)colonial periods, many stories are hidden that are not always known or immediately recognizable. How can we look at these objects today, what can they tell us about things we previously did not see? Between 2015 and 2018, eight volumes were published (in Dutch and English) on the shared history of the Netherlands and one of the following countries: China, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Suriname and South Africa.
