Provenance Research: New Cooperation
As provenance research is becoming part of the ongoing work of museums, the Rijksmuseum is joining a great many partners in a new NWA project, Pressing Matter, that aims to develop a theory of object potentialities grounded in the entangled, multipolar histories in which colonial objects were collected, kept and made meaningful.
