2022-ongoing, Installation

officialese is a series of works that explore the ways in which official languages become a tool to protect the ways things are. The series look at how official languages create violence, assimilate and discriminate against the speakers of non-official languages in state and social level, in and outside the artworlds.

officialese was initiated during a 10-months research residency with the School of Commons at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in 2022.
