Performative walks: Hanni Kamaly, Passages #1

2 May 2021

PASSAGES, Hanni Kamaly

Through film and performance works, Hanni Kamaly draws attention to how narratives of oppression transfer into contemporary public space and everyday life. In an extension of the mind-mapping methodology in the research process, Kamaly reveals the referents that are enduringly present: in architecture, the politics of representation within art histories, in media and pop culture.

In parallel to the exhibition THE MIGHT THEY HAVE, Hanni Kamaly has developed a series of performative guided walks through Stockholm, produced by Index in collaboration with Stockholms Kvinnohistoriska (Stockholm Museum of Women’s History) as part of the initiative Utom Husen. With this iteration of walks, structured around the specific sculptures, architecture, public space and histories manifested in Stockholm, the artist invites small groups to participate in demarcating what is visible but so often unseen in our common spaces.
