Yo Soy Somos [I am We are] is a project led by a dozen women, neighbors of Madrid. With their personal, collective, local and global stories they bring us closer to their often invisible reality. Starting from an approach that moves them away from the prejudices and stereotypes to which they are usually subjected, through ‘Yo Soy Somos’, we want to know more about these women who do not normally appear in the media or public spaces, but who have been living together in our society for many years and contributing initiatives for change and social transformation.
The work consists of a newspaper/exhibition in which the photographs are accompanied by various texts about migrant women and an exhibition in large photographic blocks. The narrative is constructed through photographs from the personal archives of the protagonists and their portraits taken by Angélica Dass, the project’s artistic director.
