Hodan-Ali Farah
Balaclava & Displacement

Hodan-Ali Farah

Hodan-Ali Farah was born in Bremen and moves along the intersections of art, activism and political education. She is concerned with the continuities of Bremen's colonial heritage and the resulting realities of Black people in Bremen.

She understands her works as political and resistant, as they are expressions and reflections of a reality in which colonial continuities exist and influence perceptions and experiences - they imprint themselves on the image of a city and yet remain invisible.



Balaclava & Displacement

Balaclava & Displacement is a processual exploration of the invisibility & hyper-visibility of people affected by racism. It is a look at the paradoxes of the neighborhood, which on the one hand is praised and sought out for its multiculturalism (Das Viertel is colorful, loud and dirty.), while the stay for Black people, Sinti*ze and Rom*nja, People of Color and all those who do not fit into the white middle class norm is monitored, controlled and punished according to the colonial heritage.

What are the ways out of this hypervisibility?

To what extent can withdrawal from this hyper-visibility be self-empowering?

And what can resistance look like?
