Since centuries Greenland has been target and starting point of polar expeditions. Lot's of the men being portraited in The Gallery of the Polar Travellers visited the island. The way how Inuit could survive in this climate became an inspiration for anyone, travelling the arctic regions, since at least the Greenland expedition of Fridtjof Nansen. To exhibit these portraits in Greenland is very tempting, it's like a 'meeting of veterans' in their old realm. The exhibition brings the part, being played by Greenland and it's population, and their influence on the conquest of the Arctic to a new awareness.
