Portuguese sailors landed on the shores of West Africa around 1450. Strangers at first, Europeans became trading partners, settlers and eventually colonizers.

Once African countries regained their independence in the 1950s and 1960s, their perceptions shifted once again. African artists addressed these changing relationships, incorporating, rejecting and transforming elements of European cultures. You can now experience this fascinating history—for the first time—Through African Eyes.

An Acoustiguide multimedia tour, included with the ticket, accompanies the extraordinary exhibition, organized in seven thematic areas:
