Diversity United (group show)
Hangar 2+3, Tempelhof Airport, Berlin

90 artists from 35 countries show the diverse artistic face of Europe: Diversity United presents established and young artists and advocates a European dialogue. Works by Rineke Dijkstra are included.
With stops in Berlin, Moscow and Paris, the Diversity United exhibition addresses themes such as freedom and dignity, dialogue and conflict, political and personal identity, democracy and its erosion, (fear of) the future, solidarity and separation, the current pandemic and its consequences. The exhibition shows the vitality and diversity of the contemporary European art scene after the fall of the Iron Curtain until today and underlines the importance of intercultural dialogue in times of political uncertainties.
On this occasion, Dijkstra was in conversation with curator Simon Baker and talked about her contribution to the exhibition. Watch the artist talk here.
