'In todays daily life, where you're faced with the fact that the terms
label and identity seem virtually connected to individual persons and where you
seem to be simply pressed into a profile and you sometimes want to
wriggle and squirm in to a profile fit,
should an exposure of the subjects are not lacking within the collegeof the university' , thought the artists Gerrie Starreveld and Bart Drost. That's why they developed the project 'Labeling identity', which took
place in March 2016 in the heart of Amsterdam at VOX POP, the creative
space of the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Amsterdam.
In addition to the exhibition of own art work and poetry they ran a varied lunch program with lectures and workshops from the world of theater, science and professional practice. With this they presented a surprisingly new concept at the Binnengasthuis!
