For today’s interview on Local Matters, we had Martine Pinnel and Georges Goerens in our studio. Their audiovisual exhibition “Voices” discusses systemic racism in Luxembourg.

“A European study in 2016 stated that 50 percent of black people and people of coulour in Luxembourg had made racist experiences”, Georges explains. “Luxembourg is so rich, it is open-minded, we speak four languages. Why do people feel like this? That was the starting point for our research. Then you read about it and you think about it, and come at one point to the conclusion that you might be part of the problem as a white person.”

In our interview, George and Martine told us how they tried to include this topic within the exhibition, what means they used to display the problem of racism in Luxembourg, and why – even during the last days of the project – they are still not 100 percent sure if it was the right idea to do all of this in the first place.

The exhibition is open until tomorrow, 22 June, at the cultural centre Cape in Ettelbruck.
