Diversity and Inclusion: Challenging Implicit Bias
- Monday 2 November 2015 - Thursday 3 December 2015
Kamerlingh Onnes Gebouw
2311 ES Leiden
On Thursday 5 November the University the university organised the ‘Diversity and Inclusion: Challenging Implicit Bias’ symposium.
To give diversity a visual dimension, a two-part exhibition is being held in the C hall of the Kamerlingh Onnes building. In one part you can view four works from Rebelse Trots: a project from the Spring of 2015 by artist Patricia Kaersenhout about the prominent black feminist movement in the eighties in Amsterdam. The movement was started by a group of women who joined forces in Flamboyant and Zami and called themselves ZMV women (Zwarte, Migranten en vluchtelingen Vrouwen/Black, Migrant and refugee Women).
In the second part you can view 11 works from the Art Library collection of the Centre for Visual Art South East. The collection’s intercultural perspective is one of its key characteristics, along with diversity of material and style.
