Fake Uniforms – public lecture

July 187.30 pm
July 197 pm

I’m fascinated with the difference between supposedly private and supposedly public and I try to engage with the issue of what it means to live in a society that’s seemingly shock-proof, yet still is compelled to exercise secrecy.
Barbara Kruger

Fake Uniforms is a temporary public seminar that explores some illegal practices in our daily lives. The text, developed from interviews conducted with people met in Prato, Ramallah, Marseille, Madrid, Lausanne and Nyon, also evokes practices used by movements, activists in different parts of the world, which allow the circumvention of the law without breaking it. The public is invited to position themselves and relate directly to the boundary between what is legal and what is not: the law defines what is considered moral, lawful, just, but it is a fluid parameter, which changes according to the context in which it is inscribed, the historical period and the type of privileges we enjoy. How can we act in public space to suggest possible forms of complicity and resistance?

Sara Leghissa is an artist, researcher and performer based in Milan. Together with F. De Isabella she founded Strasse, a collective currently associated with Triennale Teatro dell’Arte in Milan, which produces site-specific projects in public space to raise the level of attention on what exists, using the performative and cinematographic language as observational filters of reality.
