Lunch Talk with Imara Limon
In October 2016, the Netherlands will have its first Black Achievement Month, based on Black History Month that is organised yearly in the US and the UK. Inequality based on skin colour is still a major problem world wide, and discussions on ethnic profiling, anti-Black Pete actions and white innocence haven’t been this intense in the Netherlands since the 1980s. Imara Limon will talk about her work and experiences in the fields of contemporary art and colonial heritage in relation to this aftermath of our common past.
Imara Limon is a freelance exhibition maker and researcher on Dutch colonial heritage, currently curating ‘Zwart Amsterdam’ in the Amsterdam Museum. She was part of the team that conceptualised the Black Achievement Month, and does research and coördination for artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh’s new film work for the Venice Biennial 2017.
