Black Madonna for President - The Faces of Maria Magdalena

Ingrid Firmhofer

2017 - Ongoing

A simple but very common definition of feminism is "equality between men and women". But we don't want to be equal to men. We want

• to live our male characteristics like anger without being called hysterical or furious and assertiveness and ferocity without being classified as too masculine,

• the female values (Yin) to be appreciated again: sensuality, devotion, vulnerability, intuition, wisdom&age, and connection,

• that eroticism is seen as a sacred source of creation and creativity that takes place when Yin and Yang meet.

Connection means the connectedness of everything with everything, e.g. to nature, to men, to oneself and to one's own feelings, which are in the body. Capitalism separates using racism and sexism. The aim of the project is to create awareness to the toxic shame on these aspects. I devote this project to the women who are affected by both racism and sexism and to whom we owe sex-positive feminism: some black female dancehall and Hip Hop artists.
