New IHLIA exhibition at the UvA: Living by numbers

living-by-numbersA new selection of materials from IHLIA LGBT Heritage, the LGBT-heritage organization of The Netherlands, is now on show at the UvA Roeterseiland Campus Library.

The display cases in the reading room on the second floor – meant, as previously announced on this blog, to present items referring to the exhibitions programme at IHLIA main venue (IHLIA-square/IHLIA-plein, Central Public Library Amsterdam, 6th floor), and as such periodically changed – are now devoted to the AIDS Monument, unveiled on December 1st in Amsterdam.
