Iceland in the World, the World in Iceland
In November 2016 an exhibition on mobility and prejudice was opened in the Arc Hall. Iceland, in both past and present, has been characterized by transnationalism – just like other countries in the world. Iceland has thus been a part of the mobility of people and ideas through the centuries. It is important to highlight this in the present, when current discourse is often based on the idea that in the past different parts of the world existed in isolation from each other. Prejudices are nothing new in Icelandic society, as for centuries Icelanders' ideas have been influenced by global conceptions of race.
