Ali Quaiesa & Asma Ben Slama

„...and suddenly, I felt like everything is revolving around spaces- obviously! Entering them, taking them over, not being allowed in and: being allowed in but still feeling illegitimate. Which is what we, amongst Lorraine O‘Grady, Andrea Fraser and many many others are dealing with.“

This talk with Ali Quaiesa (Graduate MFA HFBK Hamburg Film/ Time Based Media) and Asma Ben Slama (BFA Sculpture/ Film) will revolve around the artist’s collective work, which is a part of Ali’s graduation piece ’Swimming in Circles’. In the wake of this we want to look at and discuss structures in art universities and specifically the HFBK, that take major influence on the opportunities and (working) conditions of female artists. We want to talk about struggle regarding patriarchal and racist structures and empowerment as Women of Color amongst them. What restrictions are set within the school? What impact do they have on the artist, their future and general artistic practice? What potential lies in coming together and working collectively in such an environment?
