'Horizons', one of five inaugural exhibitions to open at the new Museum of World Culture, explores the diversity of cultures across the globe that have been influenced by contemporary and/or historical links to societies on the African continent. OPERA’s task was to connect stories around migration from the African continent to the stories of African groups living in the Gothenburg area – in other words avoiding any kind of ethnocentric approach to the history of slavery and migration. Within the exhibition a picture is sketched of the diaspora that has affected Africans sitnce the inception of slavery, cultural fusions resulting there from, and the impact slavery has had on contemporary and historical African societies. Music and visual arts play an important role in the exhibition. Primarily object based, it draws heavily from the Museum’s permanent collection. There are more than 800 objects of archaeological, historical, archival and contemporary significance. Surface area: 1.000 m2.
