Info: The exhibition Who Are We Are Who reflects on the huge diversity of influences that shape us as people. Some are under our control, others not. Where we were born, our family of origin, the political system of our birth country—all of these determine how our identity unfolds, and the possible combinations and permutations are as numerous as the number of people on the planet. The very thought is fantastic, overwhelming, and confusing all at the same time. We are who we are is the slang saying, and it sounds so simple. But it isn’t. This question is the subject of entire academic fields—sociology, psychology.
