This event has already passed
From 15 September 2017 to 21 January 2018 at the Vanderborght building.
The exhibition Islam, it's also our History! shows the links between Europe and Islam, a religion that has been present on the continent for more than 13 centuries. Europe is as old as Islam itself, and European and Islamic civilizations have common intellectual and spiritual roots.
The trail runs along the heritage of the Arabs and Ottomans through the colonial past to Europe and the current Muslims, and this by using old and contemporary artwork, daily objects, multimedia, music and installations.
