What’s the Story
This design for a permanent exhibition tells the story of the museum’s colonial history, its own collection, and the architecture of the museum’s building–one of the largest in the Netherlands. The museum is displayed as a model in the exhibition, where it is the center point. It is enclosed by a timeline of infographics on three walls. The first is about the history of the museum; the second wall questions role of museums in society today; and the last highlights important works culled from the collection and their background stories. The infographics were designed as a landscape, with a horizon for the model of the museum.
