Heroes on duty - 2015
Exhebition: Groupshow 27.Jun – 05.Sep 2015
QUEERTOPIA: IT TAKES A VILLAGE. 68projects Berlin.
The artistic approach in this projectis to release typical images of gender, to go emotionally deeper into our patterns of perception, to challenge fears and to reveal the heroes inside the individuals on duty.Everywhere there is someone who tries to resist social pressures and to overrun norms. We all experience sabotage or social progress on different scales. What unite us are our emotions.The project opens the stage to people from different fields and lets them perform in a role that reincarnates emotional possibilities. The performances transform into artistic acts of liberation. Amy Winehouse was our muse to this project.
