Some Stories

1/4 2005 — 24/4 2005
Museumsquartier / Halle1

Women must confront the projections with which they are denounced by both East and West and must find their place between the simultaneous poles of capitalism and cult. Heard in this video exhibition are women artists from Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, and Turkey living both at home and abroad, who tell their individual narratives of being female. They move in the tense field of tradition and progress, regionalism and internationalism, exile and immigration, religious value systems and Western capitalist influences.
