Year: 2017
Course: Cultural Diversity, Social Practice, Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam University of Applied Science
Students: 2nd year Q7&8, interdisciplinary group of artists, designers and art teachers


This assignment was made together with Teana Boston-Mammah (sociologist) and Jan van Heemst (cultural theorist) as part of a more critical approach to cultural diversity. “In a period of increased polarisation, fragmentation of unifying ideas, we want you to think about who you are, what you do and what you stand for in a professional setting.” The course included: taking the ‘Colonial Past’ Tour at the Rijks Museum, A’dam, lectures, coaching and assessment of the work plus reflection.
