In this pop-up expo, Antonio Guzman and Iva Jankovic investigate the transatlantic, colonial history of the color indigo. Research into the history of indigo work is at the same time research into the alternative history of the Dutch nation.
Indigo finds its origin in India. The African slave trade made it particularly valuable. The sonic structures and songs that the Africans sang in the indigo, sugar and coffee plantations had a profound influence on the history of music in America. The impact that Dub has had on contemporary music production can hardly be overestimated.
