Mo’Halla at Festival Contre le Racisme

Hosted by AStA, Freie Universitat, Berlin

Sajan Mani’s performance video “My Name is Black” and Com. Jo’s durational performance Exercise in Belonging were Mo’Halla’s two contributions to the the annual antiracist festival hosted by the student bodies of universities in Germany, with a special focus on migrant students.

I place myself inside a circle drawn on the floor. Inside, I am in classic victim position: I am on my knees with my hands tied behind me. I wear only a black piece of cloth and I keep saying the words “My name is Black”.
