Alle Jong at Bonnefanten Museum

Say It Loud

29.09.20 – 18.04.21

SAY IT LOUD is an international group exhibition at Bonnefanten Museum with contemporary artists who relate in their work to subjects such as diversity, migration, the colonial past, slavery, women’s emancipation, structural economic and social exploitation, religion and war, as well as the image formation or the interpretation thereof.

For this exhibition, the artists look back, often from a personal perspective, on how colonial history has shaped them and the world around them. They link their personal experiences to larger events and processes, such as slavery, institutional racism and sexism, and image building. They investigate how identity is formed and broaden the canon with a rich visual language and range of (underexposed) stories.
