Vivi Touloumidi, 2022, Greece / Germany / Belgium
This work is created in response to the artist’s studio locality, neighboring a forced labor camp in Berlin. A memorial of world history that affected entire generations. Such place proximity initiated in-depth research on WWII badges used to categorize and systematize human bodies. The artworks reference back to the black triangle, but through a gesture of subversion, they instead speak of emancipation and self-determination of the female and social body.
