October 07 - December 10, 2017. Chiasso, CH

Biennale dell’immagine

The participation of Chiasso “culture in movimento” in the Biennale dell’Immagine has been characterized by the promotion of artistic projects in specific locations, designed and realized to directly involve the citizens of Chiasso and to publicly debate issues of great social relevance.  Humanæ’s experience has developed over a long period of time and has been articulated in a series of complementary activities, in accordance with a practice common to many public artworks in which the aesthetic, relational, and more properly educational and didactic dimensions are equal and fundamental elements of the work.

Angelica Dass e il suo progetto contro la discriminazione a Chiasso

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.
