“Shame-Less”: the experience of being looked, overlooked and shamed
During his residency, artist and curator Yanis Stefanou will be working on “Shame-Less” (working title) from September 3rd until September 12th.
“Shame-Less calls for structuring a different sense of self through shame, for subverting shaming through a performative metamorphosis. It proposes experimental forms of thematizing and celebrating the experience of being looked, overlooked and shamed. It opens up new ways of imagining and reimagining identities, relations and modes for inhabiting the existing space of power.”
The starting point of “Shame-Less” is the murder on Zak Kostopoulos – one that unravelled a prevailing culture of queer-shaming in Greece.
