Multiple Discriminations: Three Visual Portraits

A woman of Southeast Asian origin, a homosexual man from former Yugoslavia, a coloured, gay, transgender man: In this interactive installation, Elinor, Meloe, and Pascal depict how multiple discriminations are affecting their everyday life.

With a biting sense of humour and precision, they dissect racist, sexist, homophobic, and transphobic thinking patterns that permeate our society. Nadia Lanfranchi developed these visual portraits in close co-operation with the protagonists. This participatory approach allows the people thus portrayed to point out their personal perceptions and perspectives on multiple discriminations and intersectionality.
