Do you feel the need to categorize? You’re not the only one. Having prejudices towards people with different background than your own, people more rich or poor compared to you is quite normal.

But what is prejudice, exactly, and how are prejudices constructed? “Typical” invites you to reflect on the difference between important matters as racism, xenophobia and bias in everyday-life. We ask: Are prejudices dangerous, and is it possible to change them?

The exhibition allows you to participate in funny mind games challenging your personal prejudices.

Conceptual artist Thierry Geoffry / COLONEL contributes with his interactive artwork the “Anatomy of Prejudice”
