EUROPEAN DIVERSITY IN DENMARK
Photographic Exhibition
Opening

 

The CBS Council for Diversity and Inclusion, and the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU co-organize the photographic exhibition "European Diversity in Denmark".

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Diversity is one of the ground pillars of democratic societies and a core value of the European construction.

However, during the past two decades, a public debate against foreigners has been dominating the political discussions, focusing mainly on negative narratives.

This photographic exhibition opens up our eyes to the positive side of European citizens living in Denmark. Each of the 27 portraits correspond to a person born in another EU country.

Their fascinating life stories tell us about courage and integration. Tell us about their willingness to be an active part of Denmark and to make a positive contribution.

THE OPENING:
The exhibition will open with a reception. Short speeches by Alex Klinge, CBS Diversity Officer, H.E. Alexandru Grădinar Ambassador of Romania, and Susana Borrás, the photographer, will be followed by drinks and light food.

THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Susana Borrás' photography aims at triggering reflexive moments by opening up the unseen. In a hyper-mediatized world where prejudices and simplification are a constant threat to our independent thinking, her direct and colorful pictures want to make us think. She works as a professor at Copenhagen Business School.
