The anarchist citizenship

Part of a group exhbition at LhGWR, November-December 2018

The Anarchist Citizenship is initiated by researcher Amal Alhaag and me in collaboration with Somali artists, youth and women. The Anarchist Citizenship delves into the concept of the nation state in postcolonial Somaliland (East Africa).  With visual installations we investigate how Somalilanders define their sense of citizenship through fashion, architecture, friendship and culture. We attempt to offer more nuanced and insightful perspectives on the region, and document ways Somalilanders take ownership of one’s own image.
