About this event

This exhibition focuses on two interlinked realities: racism, understood as prejudice against those of different ethnic origins, combined with discriminatory actions; and citizenship, seen as the right to live, work and participate in the political life of a country, equally involving duties and responsibilities.

The tension between exclusion and integration lies at the heart of this exhibition. I invite viewers to reflect on various historical realities and recent developments, with the help of objects – paintings, sculptures, engravings, shackles, manillas, ceramics, posters, photographs and videos. Images are presented in their crudity, but they also reveal subtle contradictions, hinting at what lies beyond outward appearances.
