‘Recognizing Diversity’ Exhibition

 

‘RECOGNIZING DIVERSITY’ EXHIBITION

This exhibition has been created from Paula Verde’s photographs, and the texts of Ignacio Calderón, compiled in a recently published book ‘Reconocer la diversidad’ (Editorial Octaedro, 2018).

The exhibition aims to transform views about what we have understood by disability. Especially, the educational treatment that even today continues being given to the differences in too many schools around the world. In our educational systems, with our connivance, the systematic violation of the right to education of many children named by the disability occurs. They are segregated, rejected, objectified, ignored, unknown … in a space that must be erected as a guarantor of truly democratic societies.

This succession of images and words wants to invite a journey that overcomes indifference and allows change. A combination of beauty and discomfort that wants to disturb, yes. Because the stillness hurts. And because, by altering the order, new hopes also arise.
