On Saturday, may 12 opened in the Conde Duque Cultural Center photo exhibition "I am, we are," under the artistic direction of Angélica Dass. This exhibition, which has been conducted with the collaboration of the city of Madrid, aims to get to know those women that do not normally appear in the media or in public spaces, but which carry many years living in our society and bringing change and social transformation initiatives. ' I am, we are’ part of an approach that evades the prejudices and stereotypes that tend to be subjected.
Sample, whose images have been made by Angélica Dass and others taken from personal archives, consists of a newspaper/exposure in which the photographs are accompanied by different narratives on migrant women. All this is divided into three large cubes two by two meters in which the protagonists are Marta, Alima, Gladys... and up to a dozen women, all neighbors of Madrid with personal, collective, local and global stories that bring us closer to reality, so often invisible.
A collaborative initiative which was attended by various associations and groups of migrants together with Alliance for solidarity, within the project financed by the city of Madrid "migrant women and human rights: reciprocating," weaving networks and strengthening the exercise of rights and the participation of migrant women in a global society without discrimination".
Angélica Dass, Brazilian origin, stands out for its combination of great creativity with sociological research and the defence of human rights through their works. In 2013 he obtained the prize Festival Off of PhotoEspaña.
