Solidarity is the Only Enemy of Misery

Art

The large scale video installation Solidarity is the Only Enemy of Misery is an homage to the variety of stories and subjectivities of the LGBTQ community covering topics such as representation, identity and solidarity.

Parallel to each other, yet physically separated, the work is shown on three individual screens, all of which use their own visual vocabulary, thereby engaging in a dialogue at the intersection of ethnicity, gender and popular culture. By doing so, the film allows an insight into one of the founding houses of the Ballroom scene – the iconic house of Saint Laurent based in New York City.

The intimate interviews and the Voguing dance performances that make up the film reflect and epitomize a complex conflict between daily life (where many of them face discrimination) and the dream world.

The film not only questions systems that are based on binary positions and restrictive categorizations, but also is an empowering reminder, that despite your race, gender, sexual orientation and social class you deserve to be seen.
