To me personally, the “Identity Nomads” exhibition presents a counter-concept to the global trend of exclusion and isolation.
By connecting (un)social media and politics, the world is at risk of becoming trivialized. Emotions not facts get center stage. Fake news can hardly be distinguished from real stories anymore. This opens the door for manipulation into false beliefs. We are being distracted from the truth and true issues. The artist can make a case for understanding and reflecting on others with an open mind, guided by a sense of respect and appreciation of that which is different.
This exhibition can inspire not to judge, but to grow with the encounters of “foreign” and “other” we experience in our lives.
