HARD WHITE is a question, a dialog and most of all an inappropriate ride to the politics of self-expression.
After the performance the artist invites the audience to an art talk with Vala T. Foltyn.
This discussion explores modes of politically engaged practices and forms of activism in artistic research and artistic production. The talk will circle around notions of queer bodies and femininity in relation to recent shifts in the art community locally and internationally. There will be space for conversation, questions and comments from the audience regarding the topic of the talk as well as the work presented and the artists.
About the performance:

Areas that it’s touching upon, among others, is the representation of female body in hip hop industry, feminist agenda, fetishism, body modification. The spectators are taken into a journey, where they are invited to reflect on their own references and create awareness of their experiential associations under the exposure of certain visual, audio and other elements of stimulation. The audience is encouraged to respond to the performance, while the piece discloses a discussion within the audience’s own ethics and prejudices.
