While visiting Amsterdam recently I came across this interesting and inspiring exhibition. Barbara Broekman’s exhibition titled “My Town: A celebration of diversity” looks at Amsterdam’s cultural diversity that distinguishes the capital’s population.
Nowadays difference between people are often reduced to a simple them and us. Broekman looked at a single outstanding characteristic detail from each country and combined it into one colourful carpet. The carpet is on show for six months in the Museum of Amsterdam, free for everyone to see and everyone to walk on.
I loved this exhibition! The artist shown how diverse the city is but at the same time, she made me realise how similar we all are.
Here are some photos from the exhibition.
