Hier gilt die JUGENDKULTURKARTE Berlin!
Created from a need to demonstrate the role of society as a prominent factor in shaping our interactions and experiences as women who have been born and brought up in two completely different worlds, am I two? brings certain deep seated conflicts and tensions to the surface. Reflecting and addressing the various burdens and privileges shared by women as a collective whole, this piece provides us with a way to also question and challenge the current hierarchies and structures in place that facilitate the constant struggle to fight to have our space and place in the current world.
