Welcome to the digital 360 degree special exhibition of the SOUL OF AFRICA Museum in Essen, Germany.
The exhibition "VOODOO RAINBOW" explains in more detail the spread of religions in West and Central Africa through the transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans. Religions, such as the West African Vodun, intermingled with the religions of other enslaved people, the beliefs of indigenous populations, and the Christianity of European colonialists. The SOUL OF AFRICA Museum shows the origins of various religions on the African continent and the resulting diaspora religions from Cuba, Haiti and Brazil. Furthermore, the topic of slavery is highlighted.
You can visit the exhibition at home on your desktop, on the go on your tablet and smartphone or even with your VR headset.
By clicking and holding you can move the room in 360 degrees with the mouse of your computer. On a touchscreen this is done by manually moving the image. With a VR headset you can do so by rotating and moving your own position in the room.
The video clips that start automatically when you enter a room can be restarted after closing using the buttons in the menu footer.
Selected exhibition objects can be viewed in 3D, as images or as videos.
For a more pleasant viewing of the exhibition, these objects can only be recognized and activated after a mouseover or similar.
Due to the large amount of data (ca 8,6 GB) that is transmitted (Videos approx. 2.5 hrs.), we recommend a stable, fast internet (minimum 50 Mbit/s download) connection and a flat rate.
We wish you a pleasant stay in the digital exhibition VOODOO RAINBOW and also hope to welcome you in Essen one day.
The team of the SOUL OF AFRICA Museum.
