What does it mean to be invisible in a society?
Libanees-Palestijnse theatermaker en scenograaf Alaa Minawi onderzoekt in zijn cyclus 2048 wat het betekent om ergens ‘thuis te horen'. Je leest zijn onderzoek in het Engels.
In his performance cycle 2048, Palestinian-Lebanese performance artist Alaa Minawi has explored the concept of ‘belonging’ in different ways. For the third iteration of the project, he asked himself the question: what does it mean to be ‘visible’ or ‘invisible’ in a society? And can a certain ‘invisibility’ also be useful, as a way to more easily rebel against the system or as a way to stay off the radar of governmental institutions? In order to answer these questions, Minawi organised round table discussions about the subject and created a series of small performative interventions in the most hidden and least visible spaces of Het Huis.
