Manifestipi- Itwe Collective
October 2016 - December 2016
“This work relates to the idea of gathering. We are hoping to create a space where people encounter others, exchange ideas and embrace differences.
We aim to breed hope, cultural respect, understanding, and togetherness. Moments like these inspire us to do things that are fun and playful and that does not mean that we are negating what has happened to us – but rather activates a conversation. Continuing the dialogue, whether intense or restating the obvious, keeps it alive. There is heaviness and irony that brings back old politics, but creating the dialogue is the main focus looking forward.
Tragedies are normally at the forefront but so are the triumphs. It’s important to activate the positive communication and deeper understanding of each other and to promote that.” – ITWÉ
