Who has a proverbial "seat at the table"?

In the exhibition “Who is she?”, The monumental work “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Too” by artist and cultural activist Patricia Kaersenhout is the centerpiece. With this work, consisting of large, richly set dining tables full of glassware and embroidered runners, Kaersenhout gives women of colour a place/ seat at the table: a modern portrait of heroines of resistance.

The challenging exhibition is built around this work with modern and contemporary works from our collection. With “Who is she?”, The Frans Hals Museum encourages  you to look differently at the way women were and are being presented in museums. To make you think about which woman do you think deserves a place at the table. In this way, underexposed stories about women are literally given a place in the museum.

For whom do you reserve a place at the table?
