Body Politics is part of the Un/Engendered series of lectures and events on the multiple meanings and roles of gender in the Tropenmuseum collections. In this series we invite scholars, activists and artists to rethink and rewrite notions of gender, body politics and sexuality, and its relation to patriarchy in contemporary societies.
Body Politics is organised by Research Center for Material Culture – the research institution of Tropenmuseum, Afrika Museum and Museum Volkenkunde.
