This project started of with a research into rituals. The head carrying in Africa got my interest the most and I started asking myself why we, in the Netherlands, do not carry on the head and even never did. Then I saw similarities with the Dutch traditional costumes and found out the African head carrying fascinates me because it shows the African identity. Carry Dutch shows the new identity from the Dutch influenced by other cultures.
African headcarrying - African identity
Dutch traditional costumes - old Dutch identity
Carry dutch - new Dutch identity
