« Dortmund Zeche Zollern museum faced criticism after announcing exhibition called ‘This is colonial’ about the colonial history in everyday life offers extra opening hours for the people who have experienced racism.
Footage filmed on Friday shows exhibition halls with artefacts such as pictures of African people and traditional everyday objects on display.
According to media reports, some social networks comments accused museum in ‘racism against whites’.
In turn, spokesperson for the Westphalia-Lippe Regional Association (LWL), to which the museum belongs, replied the initiative aims ‘to give people who are affected by racism a protected space in which they can retreat and exchange ideas openly’.
While the exhibition continues its work until mid-October, the police investigation into the controversy matter is underway. »
