the gaze, the discourse of meaning and (micro)racism

influencing black male body stereotypes

combined with black slaves’ and white sixties businessmen’s clothing

form a collage of stereotypes

how do stereotypes affect identity?

how does skin colour produce labels and layered identity?

A concept about how stereotypes affect identity, how the past clashes with the here and now and how skin colour produces labels and layered identities. A comment on what is, and what could be.

The collages I made that lead to the creation of my final design (A Collage of Stereotypes) were published by online magazine SLASH-ZINE. My thanks go out to Florine van Rees, for giving me this opportunity!
