"It's only the gesture, that truly holds the power." (Iman Issa) What charge are locations, places and situations imbued with that are marked by post-colonial relationships? Women's belonging to a shared space of thought can less be explained via a specific nationality and more via the inheritance of a shared linguistic and cultural space. Jointly experienced are reflected in the works. Re-localization and appropriation of history occur via a wide range of different artistic strategies and procedures: reenactment, found footage, dance.
