Identity Flows

The historical interactions among the peoples of the Mediterranean, which have largely contributed to the design of the current cultural, linguistic and religious borders, confirm that the formation of identity is a fluid and ongoing process. In this delicate historical moment, Europe rethinks about its political, economic, and cultural role, considering not only the dramatic current events but also and especially its unstoppable demographic and social changes. Humanae is part of this change in the multi-active project – Identity Flows, Visual routes across the Mediterranean Sea.

Humanae started its experience in Sicily which has become a symbol of the mass migration flows affecting the entire Mediterranean. During the residency in Fondazione Orestiadi Gibellina (Trapani, Sicily) Angelica portrait locals and recently arrived, from 8-month-old to 80-year-old. Was an opportunity to face the complex issues related to European identity, challenged by the encounter of different cultures and languages, by their admixture and by their clash which generate continuously new forms of society.

“Urban Layers – Identity Flows” has realized, during 2016, not just an international residency for 6 artists but also was part of three urban festivals UPHO Festival, (Málaga, Spain), Photobiennale Θεσσαλονίκη (Thessaloniki, Greece) and Bitume Photofest (Lecce, Italy), research on Audience Development, an exhibition and a workshop in Triennale di Milano (Milan, Italy) and finally the publication of a book.


In this project, with the collaboration of the architecture students of the University of Malaga, our purpose to create a canvas of Humanae that could be adapted to different structures allowing a great flexibility in the assembly and that they were able to be installed in the exterior and interior.  In each one of the exhibitions we used structures customized, from recycled scaffolding in Malaga to use the pieces hunged in Lecce.

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.
