The large-scale transnational exhibition Diversity United, shows the contemporary vitality and diversity of the contemporary European art scene since the fall of the Iron Curtain and underlines the importance of intercultural dialogue in times of political uncertainties. Over 200 artworks by artists across 30 countries explore topics about freedom, dignity, democracy and respect and reflect on historically relevant and current issues, such as political and personal identity, gender and equality, nationality and territoriality, geopolitical and social conflict.
