THE EXHIBITION THE TOLERANT HOME | CHAMBRES DES CANEAUX WAS PRESENTED AT 20 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS IN THE 17TH EXTENSION OF THE CITY OF AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS IN NOVEMBER 2013, AS PART OF THE 400TH COMMEMORATION OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF FAMOUS AMSTERDAM CANAL BELT IN 1613.

EXHIBITION FEATURED 35 CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS SPREAD OUT OVER 20 LOCATIONS ALONG THE 17TH CENTURY CANAL RING. THE DIGGING OF THE CANALS, TO THIS DAY A MARVEL OF URBAN PLANNING AND INGENUITY AND A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE, TOOK PLACE IN A TIME OF IMMEASURABLE CHANGE FOR THE DUTCH 7 PROVINCES OF HOLLAND.

TRADE, INCLUDING THE TRADE OF SLAVES, AFFORDED AN UNPRECEDENTED WEALTH FOR THE NATION, YET AT THE SAME TIME ALLOWING THE MATURATION OF HUMANIST PHILOSOPHY AND THINKING. ICONIC FIGURES LIKE THE FRENCH PHILOSOPHER RENE DESCARTES (1596-1650) AND HIS DUTCH PEER HUGO GORTIUS (1583-1645), AS WELL AS DESIDERIUS ERASMUS (1466-1536) BEFORE THEM, WERE ALL ABLE TO DEVELOP MUCH OF WHAT WE TODAY CONSIDER THE PILLARS OF HUMAN RIGHTS THINKING.

THE EXHIBITION EXAMINED THIS DICHOTOMY BY FEATURING ARTISTS THAT HAVE A PROFESSIONAL OR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP TO THE CITY AS WELL AS A KEEN SHOW OF AWARENESS FOR THE TOPIC OF TOLERANCE IN THEIR WORK.
