black faces in “white” space

Black faces in “white” space______________________________________
As we continue to occupy the space and normalise the visibility and presence of Black folks in Germany.
.
.
The lack of positive public visual representation of black people in Germany needs urgent inspection and introspection from the “white” folks. Racism is a white people self-inflicted chronic condition which needs an intense (immediate) surgery.
.
Black faces in “white” in space really is just a small but vital (imperative) contribution(remedy) towards the healing(recuperation) of the “white” minds. The “white” mind needs to recovery(resurrect) and understand(recognise + realise) the basic fundamentals of human life hopefully before the eleventh hour. Of course without any doubt the “white” mind is terribly tormented and swirling in commotion of hypnotised confusion. Racism is a “white” construct which is in its ailing times though deeply ingrained in the psyche and minds of many more generations to come.
.
This fight is a fight that has been going on for more than 500 years, it’s nothing new and there’s nothing we can claim not to know about it despite how smartly concealed from the public it might seem. The culprit amongst many is of course the German politics which controls the media, which has shamelessly without a drop of blood guilt, through generations damaged the credibility and criminalised the image of black people in this country. The time is over dued to turn back the hands of time. Black faces in white in “white” space intervention is just drop in the ocean contributing to the repairs of the black façade cracked by “white” thorns sharply piercing through its concrete.
.
Black faces in “white” space photography intervention takes place online + in the open air style street exhibition in various parts of Berlin city. There are posters across the city of these photographs you see below presenting these faces in an absolutely normal manner within the spaces they live in. The spaces “white” claim ownership and control of. These faces exists and forms part of this society fro many many generations and yet strange enough are still perceived as foreign. The question is not why but how is it possible to maintain such status quo?
. 
Through this intervention I also challenge the notion of borders, between artists, art spaces, museums, galleries and the public.
