Romare Bearden

Sunday After Sermon

1969
Collage on cardboard, 101.6 x 127 cm (detail)

AUDIO GUIDE


The inclusion of an Afro-American artist in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum’s collection allows us to discuss social equality and the recognition of other cultures when reflecting on western art – both crucial to sustainable development. The work of Romare Bearden, who was politically involved in fighting for the rights of non-white people in the United States, offers a snapshot of features of western culture (collage and everyday scenes) and the social practices of the Afro-American community in the city of New York.

Respect for all human beings

Part of the class struggle involves raising awareness of and building, from the ground up, a culture of respect for human rights, which eliminates social differences. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, applicable to everyone around the world, recognises that all humans have the same value and rights. Equality means that everyone has the same value and must be treated the same.
