REJECTED IDENTITIES AT TEYLERS MUSEUM | 8 nov 2014 - 8 feb 2015
Rejected Identities is exhibited in the show On first sight at Teylers Museum Haarlem, NL. Scientists have been conducting serious research on the appearance of men and women for centuries. Entire ethnic groups were measured and labeled on their appearance. With the advent of photography and other mass media, this was widely spread throughout the world, sometimes with great consequences. The show focusses on this history, with rare and old examples from around the world, and shocking stories. Rejected Identities is part of it, as a modern work that puts our usage of identity and ID photos in perspective.
