SAY IT LOUD is part of the joint venture ‘Musea Bekennen Kleur’ (Museums Explore Colour), in which Dutch museums look at issues of diversity and inclusion within the museum sector. The approach taken by this joint venture focuses not only on the visible activities, but also – and especially – on the collaborative process.
The artists in this exhibition work in different ways and in a variety of media, ranging from painting to performance, and from sculpture to video art. They each have their own spearheads: their work touches on representation, migration, diaspora, slavery, women’s liberation, structural economic and social exploitation, religion and war. They are united by their shared wish to broaden and diversify the historical and art-historical canon.
