Recent years have seen a critical revaluation of the history of museums, as well as a call to ‘decolonize’ them. This edition of The Newsletter features a section about provenance research into colonial collections in the Netherlands and beyond. The Focus, which includes many fascinating case studies, was co-edited by Klaas Stutje and Jona Mooren.
