Project Description

In his body of work, Hiwa K explores oral histories, modes of encounter, and political situations while critiquing the art education system. Pre-Image, 2017 traces the artist’s psycho-geographic journey by foot through Iran, Turkey, Greece, and Italy to seek refuge in Germany, suggesting how the body’s movement can be a useful, though an imperfect source of knowledge. It almost hit the heart, 2019 reveals the problems of representation when propaganda and history converge.
