The show

Istituto Svizzero is pleased to present “I is we, we is them, them is us, us is I, I is you and you is I”, first solo exhibition in Italy by Swiss artist Ramaya Tegegne.

Ramaya Tegegne’s installations,performances,publications, and projects investigate the economics of art production, display, representation, and reception. She often cites other artists and artworks to do so. Tegegne’s preoccupations for this exhibition lay on the intersection of feminist and activist discourses. She explores collaborative practices, cooperation, conversations as a means of sharing knowledge as well as deconstructing the social preconditions and dominant mechanisms of the art field. The title of the show is a borrowed quote by Sister Souljah, an Afro-American “raptivist”, author, recording artist and community activist.
