Greenland over Time

A new joint exhibition of the science and history museums of the Palais de Rumine, Qanga is based on a graphic novel by Greenlandic artist Konrad Nuka Godtfredsen. It tells the story of Greenland: from the time of the first hunter-gatherers who immigrated from present-day Canada 4,500 years ago to the years of cohabitation with the first Danish missionaries and settlers.  

An interdisciplinary exhibition on the Great North, mixing history, art and natural science.
