Neither Art Nor Education, intergenerational experience

In collaboration with Matadero Madrid and Pedagogías Invisibles, an inter-generational workshop was held in Madrid with parents, tutors, educators and children in attendance. The aim was to deactivate the concept of race through a creative and plastic structure that would allow them to discover the real color of each participant. A great opportunity for parents and children to build something together while facing complex social issues. A final piece was created to complement the installation of 50 portraits from the Humanae series. In total, 100 reinterpretations of the work were exhibited.

It is important for everyone to see that just because a person has a different color, it doesn’t mean that should be treated badly

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
