Reversed Silhouettes of European History, 2017
Paper cuttings, 70 x 50 cm

Reversed Silhouettes of Europea History investigate how formal and informal education material have informed my own Eurocentric understanding of the world. Based on archival material I speculate how my cultural archive was formed by one-sided stories of all male white heroes, ethnic masquerades which construct a world vision based on the division of the West and the Rest. What is needed to unlearn my own biases? What can we do to de-colonize history lessons? How to teach history from a global perspective? How to overcome an understanding of belonging based on National identities?
