NEXT STOPS - Europe
Based on Ahmed Tobasi’s personal coming of age story, AND HERE I AM is an epic voyage of identity and self discovery. Combining fact and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, spanning both the first Palestinian intifada and the second, we follow the protagonist through his transformation from armed resistance fighter to artist, his journey as a refugee in the West Bank to Norway and then back again.
AND HERE I AM
Reimagining the Cultural Ecosystem
Using the metaphor of home, we questioned and mapped the areas of crisis that are affecting independent cultural workers and artists.
Each room holds provocations in the form of questions, sometimes for ourselves but mostly directed at the institutions, funders, and large-scale organisations in positions of power, to challenge the toxic and oppressive work systems that we find ourselves in.
