Istituto Svizzero presents "I is we, we is them, them is us, us is I, I is you and you is I", the first solo show in Italy by the Swiss artist Ramaya Tegegne.
Ramaya Tegegne's installations, performances, publications and projects investigate the economics of artistic production, exhibition, representation and their reception. This practice often takes shape starting from quotes from other artists and works of art. The problems that Tegegne tackles in this exhibition concern, equally, issues of activism and feminists.
The artist explores collaborative practices, cooperation and conversations as a tool for sharing knowledge, unhinging the social preconditions and dominant mechanisms in the art system.
The title of the exhibition is a borrowed quote from Sister Souljah, an African American raptivist, author, record artist and activist.
