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.

Three The Hard Way

Post date Thu 30 Jan 2014 5:04 PM

This week:

1. Intellectual stimulation witch A tribe called Each One Teach One - our academic Hip Hop Studies (- to Cultural Studies)  work shop, once a month at ABF-huset. Tuesday was the #2FACED1 - factor extra high with a lot of Cultural Studies / Birmingham school material presented by Nathan Hamelberg. Think Stuart Hall, Paul Gilroy, Dick Hebdige and so on! So much valuable knowledge for a modern Sweden 3.0 - as a part of a global context.

2. See "Fashion" on Svt, one day at work with moi (a very ill person when this was recorded though =/), feat. U Should Know Better and the interactive Malcolm B video project etc, follow me and Maceo Frost while we are directing Malcolm Bs new video.

3. Organizing the music with Ninsun Poli @ the #HernandezCornet fashion show during Fashion Week, my only appearance (except watching Beckamans Pupils show called "Other Perspectives", had to since shifting perspectives is my way of life...!). BTW: Stay tuned for my project with the Konstfack pupils as guest-lecturer in March!

Miss my, now, old office!
