Identity is a hot but complicated topic. It seems we all have to be aware of our identity nowadays, but discussing it often leads to controversy. Why is it so hard to talk about identity and how can we define identity in a more constructive way?
With an art exhibition and a debate about identity, VU Amsterdam wants to address the sometimes-difficult quest for identity.
The exhibition displays artworks that focus on the quest for identity. Participating artists are: Sara Blokland, Risk Hazekamp, Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, L.A. Raeven, Pieter Verhoeff about Erik van Lieshout, Willem Popelier and Get Me. The exhibition is on view until July 12.
In a debate on July 9 we will explore the role of the body in constructing identity. VU scientists from different disciplines will reflect on this topic. Some artworks will work as showcase for their lectures. Insights can be exchanged in a discussion afterwards.
We would be happy to welcome you at this event What about me at July 9 at the VU.
