At the crossroads of biology, history and sociology, the exhibition enables us to understand scientifically what racism is about, as well as how and why this phenomenon is occurring in our societies. The exhibition Us and them. From prejudice to racism also presents the state of knowledge on the subject, notably in areas related to human genetics that confirm that the notion of «race» is not scientifically valid in humans.
