Can I remove them (or just one of them)?

It is normal, both desktop files are installed with it:

$ dpkg -S desktop | grep imagemagick
imagemagick: /usr/share/applications/display-im6.desktop
imagemagick-6.q16: /usr/share/applications/display-im6.q16.desktop

Two options here:

  • If you do not need ImageMagick you may remove its packages with
    sudo apt-get purge imagemagick imagemagick-6.q16
    (but it may remove essential packages from system such as CUPS)
  • Try to hide icons with alacarte (easy GNOME menu editing tool).

    By the way, Removing imagemagick is VERY dangerous, because it can break cups. May 23, 2020 at 19:19
