Are Jews white?
In Are Jews white? the Jewish Cultural Quarter, together with guest curators Gideon Querido van Frank, Lievnath Faber and Anousha Nzume, will explore where Jews are (placed) on the spectrum of current identity and representation politics. Are they seen as perpetrators or victims? Privileged or disadvantaged? How do they see this? And how do others perceive them?
The Jewish Cultural Quarter
The Jewish Cultural Quarter in Amsterdam consists of the Jewish Historical Museum, the JHM Children’s Museum, the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg, and the National Holocaust Museum.
The Jewish Cultural Quarter invites its visitors to acquaint themselves with Jewish culture and history, to deepen their existing knowledge, and to think actively about the subject of cultural diversity. Their basic principle is to make the Jewish story accessible in a positive way to as much of the general public as possible.
The Jewish Cultural Quarter offers a range of fascinating exhibitions, all pertaining to the past, present and future of Jewish culture. Book your tickets for a visit, or discover a part of the collection in the online museum.
