Young Voices on Slavery

What does the cash book of a plantation sound like? What are the thoughts of a brush that was used for incantations? In what voice does an eighteenth-century contract speak? And what story is hidden in the doll's house of painter Jacob Appel? Eighteen young Flemish and Dutch authors from deBuren's Paris writing residency give a voice to an artefact from the Slavery exhibition at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
