Landscapes of the African American Diaspora in Denmark

An Imaginary Exhibition

  • Ethelene Whitmire Department of Afro-American Studies, University of Wisconsin – Madison


This imaginary exhibition is based on the archive of items collected to write the book manuscript for Searching for Utopia: African Americans in 20th Century Denmark. Professor Ethelene Whitmire used the method of curatorial dreaming to design this exhibition and was influenced by African American expatriate Walter Williams’s landscape paintings that reflect the themes in the book.
