Abstract: Planeada em 2017, a exposição sobre ‘Escravatura” (Slavernij) devia ter aberto em Fevereiro de 2021, mas foi adiada devido à pandemia, sendo inaugurada pelo Rei Willem-Alexander a 18 de Maio, embora limitada praticamente a ser virtual, com exceção feita para grupos escolares, até finalmente abrir as portas ao público em geral no dia 1 de Junho. Da longa lista de expectativas que se foi acumulando pode-se destacar a de uma abordagem séria de um assunto a que muitos se esquivam: o papel fundacional da escravatura com toda a sua crueldade e desumanidade na constituição do âmago da modernidade europeia em geral, e, neste caso particular, do Reino dos Países Baixos.
Planned since 2017, scheduled to open in February 2021 but delayed by the pandemic, the exhibition on ‘Slavery’ at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam drew a long list of expectations. It was finally inaugurated by King Willem-Alexander on 18 May, though it remained for the most part a virtual exhibition, except for arranged school tours, until the museum could open its doors on 1 June to the general public. Not least in that list of expectations was the attempt at seriously engaging with a subject often shunned by many, the founding role of slavery in all of its cruelty and inhumanity in forming the very core of modern Europe in general, and in this particular case, of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
