Live Presentation: Faces/Places/Spaces Exhibition / HB55 Kunstfabrik, Berlin
Faces/Places/Spaces is a two-day video exhibition and performance by five artists from five different countries and continents:
Haleh Jamali / Seiji Morimoto / Giovanni Randazzo / Era Vati / Giulia Spugnoli (Le Immagini di Vetro Project)
Ciaran Benson in his book ' The cultural psychology of self' is talking about that SELF, is how much related to PLACE/SPACE and TIME. Self identity, the question 'who you are' is very much connected to the
question 'where you are', 'where you have been' and 'where you hope

a condition of existence. Where, when, who are mutually constitutive.
Lives, selves, identities are threaded across times and places...
