Identity politics

Identity (construct of…)

“Now part of what”…“I see as the problem is the idea of anybody’s having to fight the fragmentation and multicultural diversity of the world, not to mention outright oppression, by constructing something so rigid as an identity, an identity in which there has to be a fixed and immobile core, a core that is structured to hold inviolate such a complete biological fantasy as race— whether white or black”  —Samuel R. Delany, interviewed by Mark Dery, 1994

‘De’ Nederlandse identiteit bestaat niet — Maxima

At the presentation of a report called ‘Identification with the Netherlands’ by the Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) on September 23, 2007, princes Máxima stated that ‘The’ Dutch identity does not exist”. (AD, 2007).  Máxima specified her statement more extensively during the presentation: “The Netherlands is: big windows with no curtains, so everyone can look inside. But also: privacy and cosyness (‘gezelligheid’). The Netherlands is: one biscuit at tea-time. But also: an enormous hospitality and warmth. The Netherland is: down-to-earth and control. But also: the intense and collective experience of emotions.”
(AD, 2007).
