ARTIST TALKS with DaGeG collective & REALILLUSION collective
Please revisit this page for updated information on the presentation format (online or in person) and time schedule.

DaGeG collective is a quxiled arab-speaking collective that aims to revamp the cultural constellation by magnifying the brightness of long shadowed minorities. As the progeny of an archaic pain DaGeG found their way into forming this collective through the undeniable presence of collective trauma.

For them, creating this collective is a way to collectively heal themselves and the OTHERs, and to transform the noise and chaos that rages inside them into tools of radical change that endorse coexistence. DaGeG, as an interdisciplinary collective, adjusts their practices and mediums depending upon the contingent situation at hand. They believe art is a language, the medium, just a character.

DaGeG creatures: Michael(a) Daoud, Marxus Absi, Najwa Ahmed.

REALILLUSION. Atefeh Kheirabadi and Mehrad Sepahnia are fighters. For them, Civil Disobedience is at the core of their lives and artistic work. The duo’s name, Realillusion, refers to how their practice corresponds to the connections between ‘real’ and ‘illusion’ and the combination of experiment and experience. As experimental filmmakers Kheirabadi and Sepahnia explore this interface through interdisciplinary and participatory formats in order to develop a personal approach to telling narratives.
