A video conceived and narrated by Sofia Kouloukouri
What does “Afropean” mean? What does it mean to be a woman in Iran nowadays? And how to assume one’s body when it has already been appropriated by art history? What strategies do we use today to go beyond stereotypes and find our own voice?
This thematic video about the Lemaniana exhibition tries to answer these questions that cross the work of many artists. These questions are all related to the notion of identity – an identity that is always more open, fluid, and transcends established codes. The latter takes an important place in a world governed by social networks and the power of images, whose impact on the perception of the other is becoming ever greater. Discover how artists are taking back the power over their identity through codes of the image.
