Selma Selman at the Kasseler Kunstverein


ERIAC is pleased to support the exhibition of Selma Selman at the Kasseler Kunstverein.

DON’T LOOK INTO MY EYES is the first comprehensive solo exhibition by Selma Selman in Germany, curated by Boshko Boskovic and Olga Holzschuh. 

On view from 02.09 – 24.10.2021

Artist and activist Selma Selman (*1991 BiH) integrates narratives of the Roma community, including her own family, in her artistic practice. Her works alternate between sensitive, harsh and ironic gestures revealing discriminatory identity attributes, role expectations and stereotypes. Thereby, Selman’s body and identity become a medium for capturing universal and personal themes that articulate political resistance and feminist empowerment. Her work is socially engaged, bringing to the forefront the value of the labour that is traditionally performed by Roma, rendering these stories visible and thus reorienting the usual narratives and making them more socially acceptable.
