The Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum has a special position in North-Rhine Westphalia. As the only public institution of its kind it has devoted itself for over a hundred years to the dissemination of aspects of non-European history, culture and art in a wide- ranging programme of exhibitions and events. In this way it has an important educational mission which is assuming more and more importance for the solution of current questions and problems of living together in a multicultural society: It is only through a knowledge of other cultures and awareness of different concepts of life - even in the immediate vicinity - that mutual understanding, appreciation and tolerance can be promoted.
