The exhibition Yo Soy somos by Angélica Dass can be visited at the Palacio de la Audiencia in Soria from 12 May to 12 June, as part of the activities programmed by the Onphoto Soria festival.
YO SOY SOMOS is a newspaper/exhibition with the aim of sharing diverse narratives about migrant women. Marta, Alima, Gladys… are some of our protagonists, with their own names, but with stories that could be mine, yours or ours. Interchangeable stories, personal, collective, local and global, breaking with prejudices and stereotypes from their position as political subjects.
On 15 May at 10 a.m. in Sala Noble of Palacio de la Audiencia, Angélica Dass will give a lecture entitled “Photography as a tool to generate empathy” in which she explains how she uses her personal experiences and her creative process to amplify the social message of her photographic work.
The conference also addresses the work done with the women who were part of the exhibition Yo Soy Somos, sharing the lines of thought and action that were carried out to develop the different narratives of migrant women. Through her experiences in this personal and collective creative process, Angélica shows the power of photography as a tool for social debate and its capacity to deconstruct prejudices and stereotypes.
