Karla Isidorou: Did / do / will we shout out loud enough?
Did / do / will we shout out loud enough?, is the probing question that Karla Isidorou poses in this poetic desktop essay for our Future Justice series. Karla has started researching political speeches and the power of language. Her research resulted in a toolbox of the past, a time machine that crosses the present, past and the future, and a language machine that cuts up, spits out and collides tools and thoughts on justice.
Karla Isidorou is a multidisciplinary artist that creates performative installations. Her work questions, connects, transforms, and exposes social realities. Through different mediums she invites the public to encounter new worlds out of poetic perspectives and rethink the one we (will) live in. In this bio you cannot find her past, because her eyes, her body, her words and her work are reaching out to the future, and she invites you to do the same.
She is co-founder of K&A, an artistic duo formed with Alexandra Bellon, that breaks the single signature and reaches across a multiplicity of artistic disciplines.
'Future Justice' is a programme that invites young artists, researchers and educators to help unpack the idea of a future that is based on justice. Out of deep concern for the world, which is marked by a climate crisis as well as a social and political crisis, ArtEZ studium generale commissioned the publication series 'Future Justice'.
It is a series of publications in which students and alumni of ArtEZ present their visions of the future. 'Future Justice' aims at unfolding alternative ideas of justice, which are informed by ideas of collectivity, care, restoration, non-violence and compassion. In doing so, the series takes a kaleidoscopic, hopeful and meaningful look at the future.
'Future Justice' is a programme commissioned by ArtEZ studium generale it is carried out by the ArtEZ Professorship Aesthetics & Cultures of Technology in cooperation with the ArtEZ Honours Programme.
