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.
HARD WHITE is a performance based on a research project with reference in inappropriate behavior in various contexts. 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.
