Imaging Inequality is a project initiated by the Global Research Programme on Inequality (GRIP) engaging with visual artists from across the world to reflect on and illustrate different perceptions and representations of inequality in specific contexts.
The full exhibition can be seen at the Student Centre in Bergen.
Inequality, often reduced to notions of poverty, has multiple dimensions and assumes many faces. It can entail not only differences between levels of wealth, but also between the social status of groups; imbalances in access to health, justice; differentiated capacity to influence political decision-making processes; discrimination based on gender, ethnicity, race and religion; exposure to pollution and risks; as well as differences in access and contribution to types of knowledge.
The exhibition is a part of GRIP’s contribution to this year’s Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) “Understanding and addressing inequality” 7-17 June.
