EXDRESS: BODY, TRAUMA, EXCLUSION AND INCLUSION
Displaced from their homelands because of war, Sanija Kulenovic and Adi Liraz - respectively of Muslim and Jewish heritage - have been commemorating and exploring their intimate and collective memories, and the regenerative power of shaping new personal histories, through a series of public interventions. These feature two dresses which are interwoven, exchanged and dissolved, interconnecting and bounding also with their surrounding and the viewers/participants, thus creating web-like structures that give life to new narratives.
During the Month of Performance Art- Berlin, 2015, as a part of a new embodied common thread, various international artists and theorists were invited to take and contribute their story and their part of a common web which will be created especially for this occasion.
