The participants of this panel will talk about what it takes to create “recognizable visibility” in jazz and improvised music. They will take a look at structural discrimination and privileges in this music genre and discuss who is currently visible and in what form. Why is it that some groups of people are barely visible in the jazz scene? And what does (in-)visibility, recognizing visibility, actually mean? Is visibility the right word, the right concept for this?
