about 2faced1.com

2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;

Persona 1:
WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

Persona 2:
WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!

 

A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND

A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.

It's Madonna Week: Madonna on Basquiat

Post date Wed 5 May 2010 11:02 AM

PHOTOS: Steve Torton

Looks like this week going to be a Madonna one. Didn't plan to but she came up on this superlong facebook discussion that was following the GRACE on GAGA post, and I guess I felt like paying dues before she's gone, I mean, we didn't expect it to happen to MJ so we never know... But still I think Madonna love life to f*in much, I wouldn't be suprised if she outlived many of us, in fact, science move towards cloning and neverending life and I'll bet Madonna would be one of the first on it!

In  Interview Madonna was speaking about the start of her career and the early 80's in NYC, people like KENNY SCHARF and Basquiat, and I realized I never posted the amazing photos of them as a couple.

In 1996, Madonna wrote a short essay on Basquiat for The Guardian prior to a show of his work at London's Serpentine Gallery.

"He was one of the few people I was truly envious of" . "But he didn't know how good he was and he was plagued with insecurities. He used to say he was jealous of me because music is more accessible and it reached more people. He loathed the idea that art was appreciated by an elite group. When I heard that Jean-Michel had died, I was not surprised. He was too fragile for this world."


Great article including the Madonna & Basquiat months: Barry Didcock "Morton fails to find the face of Madonna".
