More about Crossroads

Crossroads are intersections and contact zones – places where we compromise, build coalitions or wind up in conflict.

Here we explore the collections from various perspectives on crossroads: worldviews, change, concepts, routes, confluences and democracy. Pathways are interwoven. They diverge in varies directions and end up in different contexts or disappear from history.

Crossroads are places of euphoria and tragedy – of communication, contemplation and consumption. Here we explore the collections from various perspectives on crossroads. Epochs and geographic areas cross and intermingle. The objects in the exhibition all carry stories of how worlds and people have met and been enriched or deprived.
