Naming what was once unnameable

Naming what was once unnameable (ongoing project) is a photographic research project starting out from the childhood memories of women of color who grew up in the German-speaking countries. It deals with experiences of exclusion and visualizes them as already existing knowledge: what was once unnameable becomes nameable. Beyond the individual level, it is a matter of illuminating the structural anchorage of discriminations such as racism, heteronormativity, classism etc. in various social contexts (e.g. kindergarten, school, family). The project has already been exhibited several times in Austria and Great Britain and was awarded the Theodor Körner Prize for Art in 2016.
Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński will present her project in a lecture and subsequent discussion.

Presenter: Andrei Siclodi (Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen)
A joint event with Globales Lernen, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen and Südwind Tirol
