Selma Selman
02.09. – 24.10.2021

Opening: 01.09., 6 pm
Performance Selma Selman: 01. and 02.09., 7 pm

The Kasseler Kunstverein is pleased to present "DON'T LOOK INTO MY EYES”, the first comprehensive solo exhibition by Selma Selman in Germany.
The artist and activist, of Bosnian and Herzegovina origin, Selma Selman (*1991) integrates narratives of the Roma community, including her own family in her artistic practice. At the Kasseler Kunstverein, she shows works that alternate between sensitive, harsh and ironic gestures and expose discriminatory identity attributions, role expectations and stereotypes. Thereby Selman's body and identity becomes a medium for capturing universal and personal themes that articulate political resistance and feminist empowerment.

This exhibition was made possible with support from

Kulturamt der Stadt Kassel
The Rockefeller Brothers Fund
ERIAC - European Roma Institut for Arts and Culture
Hessisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst    
ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen)
Kasseler Sparkasse
