Latest Opportunities

Identity is a complex thing. We are a multiplicity of things: of gender, of culture, of language, of politics. Difference is beautiful. So ticking just one box is no longer relevant. It isn't that simple. – Katherina Radeva

DIY 14: 2017 - Katherina Radeva: On Otherness

Identity is a complex thing. We are a multiplicity of things: of gender, of culture, of language of politics. Difference is beautiful. So ticking just one box is no longer relevant. It isn't that simple.

Project summary

Never more than now, does it feel like we are defined by difference.

Differences in what we are and we are not. Never more than now does it feel like redefining belonging and otherness is an urgent response to what is happening around us. This DIY is an exploration on otherness. What does it mean to be on the other side, whose side, what side, in the in-between, in the indefinable, in the “i don't want to define it", in the “it's your fault", “you can't blame them”. This project is about dialogue. A dialogue about the beauty of difference.

How to apply

Applications are invited via the link below. Included are questions on you and your practice, what you hope to get out of the DIY, and your thoughts on belonging.
