On Sunday 22 May, the last day of the exhibition To Be Like Water, you are welcome to join us for a guided tour in Dutch Sign language by Renske Maes (Stichting IN gebaren). The tour starts at 14.00 until 15.00 p.m.

The exhibition aims to examine and complicate the notion of identity, and consider code-switching as a manifestation of a fluid multiplicity that operates within vectors of power. In linguistics, code-switching denotes the practice of alternating between two or more languages in a conversation by multilingual speakers. Now, the term also commonly refers to the adaptation of a style of speech according to the group who is being addressed. In this sense, code-switching is the conscious or unconscious reworking of different cultural and linguistic identities, depending on different situations.

The exhibition To Be Like Water is curated by Kris Dittel.
