In collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut, Shay Kreuger presents the talk show STATEMENTS, a lively discussion about local and (inter)national issues in design, art, culture, politics, entertainment and society. In the second edition, Shay talks with her guests about Black representation in Disney films, the deconstruction of riots, and designing your own death.

Shay is joined by Saskia van Stein (curator of the forthcoming Disney exhibition at Het Nieuwe Instituut and head of The Critical Inquiry Lab MA at Design Academy Eindhoven) and Robert-Jonathan Koeyers (animator and filmmaker) to talk about the representation of Black bodies in Disney films. Gaard Kets (historian and political theorist) and Roberto Lima (youth worker at Thuis op Straat) deconstruct the rioting that occurred after the implementation of the national curfew in the Netherlands. Finally, Claudia Crobatia (_deathfluence_r and creator of the death awareness platform A Course in Dying) and Gène Bertrand (co-curator of Re(Designing) Death and responsible for programme and development at Museumplein Limburg) discuss designing your own death.
