The exhibition contrasts the representations of cultural perception concerning the Orient and the Occident against the representations of Oriental and Occidental self-perception as they appear in literature, the media and every day life in order to break the stereotypes. In order to differentiate the problem even further the representations of cultural perception are contrasted against the perception-in return of this perception and by migrant perspectives.

This is done by selecting a limited number of topical fields which are subject to Orientalist and Occidentalist stereotyping: women, men, Europeans/ Occidentals, Orientals, the veil, the headscarf, freedom, nudity, Istanbul, Paris, Nathan the Wise.

Part of the visual material shown in the exhibition is taken from the “Breaking the Stereotype” photocontest, which Kadir Has University and the University of Innsbruck launched in cooperation with fotoalem.com, other exhibits have been designed by students of Innsbruck University and Notre Dame University of Beirut, and by young Austrian and German artists
