Sjors and Sjimmie set up camp by a chest that washes ashore. The next day they find an unconscious Native American whom they nurse at their tent camp. They get lost in the forest where they spend the night, where unknowingly the horse thieves also spend the night. In the morning Sjors and Sjimmie are captured. They manage to overpower the thieves and tie them to a tree. On horses they find, they go in search of their camp.

Relation

Facing Blackness is a multimedia exhibition that takes the public through the obscure history of portraying Black people from the colonial period to contemporary society. Using unique archive material and visual art, we show how anti-black racism became part of the Dutch 'cultural archive' and our everyday ideas, customs and utensils. On the other hand, the exhibition shows how there has always been 'everyday resistance' to various forms of racism and how Black people themselves have given and continue to give meaning to their culture and identity.
