Migration process

The House of Knud Rasmussen focuses on the Greenlanders migration and all the situations they have lived and experience in their day-to-day life in Denmark. The period of study takes place after 1945 and aftermath, and subsequent generations.

  • The informants are Greenlandic migrants and their descendants.

The Greenlandic-Danish common history and relationship

Between 1721 and 1953, Greenland was a Danish colony. The two countries have a long common history with an unequal balance of power between them. Greenland is part of The Kingdom of Denmark with the Faroe Islands and Denmark.

The Danes and the Greenlanders differ in many ways. They have different languages, cultures, appearances, values, humour, food, and more. But the long common history between Greenland and Denmark means that the ties are still very strong. 

'Among Greenlanders in Denmark'

On Friday 11 March, the traveling exhibition opened at the IMMIGRANTMUSEET. Many stories are about racism, micro-aggressions and pride. The exhibition will subsequently travel to the 4 Greenlandic houses in Denmark: Det Grønlandske Hus Aarhus, Det Grønlandske Hus KBH – Kalaallit Illuutaat, Det Grønlandske Hus Odense and Det Grønlandske Hus i Aalborg.
