Universities, as spaces and institutions, are based on white, male, heteronormative foundations and a continuation of coloniality. To decolonise universities, we must deconstruct their universal character of Eurocentric knowledge by supplementing and contrasting this knowledge with intellectual and cultural output from other backgrounds and perspectives. This poster presents the decolonisation efforts of the Free University of Brussels.
