Video Preview @ Virtual Arbeitszimmer thealit

From her studio work at thealit's Arbeitszimmer (COAPPARATION* part 3) YeLa An already presents first results. Some of her Bremen interview series with Corean artists are prepared to be shown as a preview in our ’Virtual Arbeitszimmer.’ 

It's on the situation of these women, anti-Asian resentments in the times of COVID-19, on sexism and much more: "Indeed, they narrate why they thematize Asian female identities and Asian bodies in their artistic works." Let's find out about that! The interviews are the first part of her project Sorrow, at the Traffic Year.

This project is not only supported by thealit Frauen.Kultur.Labor. also supported by the BMKÖS and Bildrecht.

To be seen Thursday, October 7 at 7 p.m. at thealit's website
