Museum of the World

"Museum of the World" is a two part series tracing the evolution of western attitudes to indigenous civilisations culminating in the opening, in Paris, of the Musee du Quai Branly.

Founded on a belief "in the equal dignity of the world's cultures", Former French President, Jacques Chirac said, "France wished to pay rightful homage to peoples to whom, throughout the ages, history has all too often done violence". Works from Oceania, Asia, Africa and the America's, collected over the past four centuries, have been given an ultra modern home in the Musee du Quai Branly. The design of the museum and its ceilings, floors and facades have drawn heavily on the work of contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists.
