Identity&Nomadism
Identity&Nomadism | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanPalazzo delle Papesse, Siena, May 27 - September 25, 2005 Integration and conflicts are redefining our perception of self.

And which identity is the artist talking about? The collective exhibitions at Palazzo delle Papesse is reflecting on the theme without looking for definitive answers.
 
First Mediterranean Encounters with Horcynus Orca
First Mediterranean Encounters with Horcynus Orca | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanSicily, Calabria, 14th May – November 2005 Mediterranean Encounters is an inquiry project into the deep currents of visual arts in the Mediterranean regions. Planned to be a three-year event to be developed into three different exhibitions and other side-events specifically addressed to the territory. Mediterranean Encounters are thought as a recognition along the entire perimeter of this mobile but persistent border; restless space recently scoured by a mosaic of conflicts and wars that, yet, cannot destroy and remove the concept of "something in common", the continuity of history and of memory that always re-emerges, beyond the differences of the "present tenses" that any region lives.

The day the mask came off
The day the mask came off | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanOn 25 May, Egyptians were told by their newspapers, by their radio and television stations, by their politicians that they would be going out to vote to change the destiny of their country. In the week prior to the day of the referendum, banners on the street and on Cairo’s main buildings, large advertisements were put up. They told people to “share your voice to build your future” by voting ‘yes’ in the referendum. In all of official Egypt -- the regime’s Egypt that ,dominates the airwaves, television screens and print media -- the message was clear: the referendum marks a real change for the better, the beginning of a long-awaited march towards democracy.

Shatila's Whirlpool
Shatila's Whirlpool | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanJust as a military commander explains the battlefield and his plan of attack by sketching out a rough military map, Maher Abi Samra's film begins with a short but intense explanation of the history and geography of the Palestinian camp of Shatila, first established in 1949; a kilometer long and 600 meters wide. Shatila is above all a place where inside and outside blend into one another, and chairs wait for the weight of the unemployed.
