Following the exhibition held earlier this year at the UvA-Library P.C. Hoofthuis, IHLIA LGBT Heritage, the LGBT-heritage organization of The Netherlands, is now presenting a selection from its collections at the Roeterseiland Campus Library.
While the display case on the first-floor landing (photo above) presents a choice of materials illustrating the variety and significance of the IHLIA collections – and will therefore have a more permanent character – the display cases in the reading room on the second floor (photo below) will be filled with items referring to the exhibitions programme at IHLIA main venue (IHLIA-square/IHLIA-plein, Central Public Library Amsterdam, 6th floor), and as such will periodically be changed.
The current show – and the related materials at the UvA-Library – is Queering Zuidoost, devoted to the presence and visibility of the LGBT community in the Amsterdam Zuidoost district (often referred to as ‘the Bijlmer’).
