EQUALS — for the acceptance of diversity


The pro­ject was exhi­bi­ted in over ten coun­tri­es with simi­lar pro­blem of ste­re­otyping of mino­rity identities

The EQUALS col­lec­ti­ve is a gro­up of women from Zagreb of vari­ous eth­nic, reli­gi­ous, raci­al and sexu­al iden­ti­ti­es. The aim of the­ir acti­vity is direc­ting atten­ti­on to the pre­sen­ce of dis­cri­mi­na­ti­on in Croatian soci­ety, and raising awa­re­ness on the impor­tan­ce of accep­tan­ce of diver­sity. The col­lec­ti­ve was ini­ti­ated and led by visu­al artist Andreja Kulunčić, the other mem­bers wish to rema­in anonymous.

Since 2007, when the pro­ject “EQUALS — for the accep­tan­ce of diver­sity” was shown publi­cly in Zagreb, it has been exhi­bi­ted in dif­fe­rent coun­tri­es, eit­her in the form of public inter­ven­ti­ons and/or in a muse­um-gal­lery context.



The pro­ject was pre­sen­ted for the first time in a muse­um-gal­lery con­text in 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb in the form of a bil­l­bo­ard, ani­ma­ti­on and docu­men­ta­ti­on of the public inter­ven­ti­on of the work.


It was an exhi­bi­ti­on of wor­ks from the Deutsche Art Collection Telekom “The Voice of the Artist / I Am The Mouth”. The cura­tors of the exhi­bi­ti­on were Nathalie Hoyos, Rainald Schumacher and Radmila Iva Janković.
