Us and them: from prejudice to racism

What is race? Are we all racists? What do history and science say about this phenomenon?


With immersive scenography and numerous multimedia devices, this committed exhibition confronts the public with their own representations. At the crossroads of anthropology, biology, economics, sociology and history, and based on the latest discoveries, it examines the phenomena of racialisation and demonstrates that racism is a social construct.
