Join us for a live “Der Greif X MPB: Behind the Image” conversation on February 12th at 20:30 pm CET with artist JaLeel Marques Porcha. Marques Porcha is the Guest Room Scholarship recipient of 1.000 € from our Guest Room curated by Nadine Henrich and William Camargo on the theme; “Poetics of Counter-Archives”. Together with the curators, Marques Porcha will take an in-depth look into their practice and series "Notes On: Feeling", which explores notions of the archive and history; community and universality; (transgenerational) trauma and the ideas of overcoming said trauma. Their practice is multifaceted and investigates solitary identity to narrate personal experiences for others to recognize similar or different experiences within themselves. Their inspiration derives from their lived experience, introspectiveness, and black popular culture. Porcha aims to surface the links that connect the nuances that target the intersections of their salient identities. Through the usage of a variety of mediums and approaches, Porcha creates layered spaces for imaginative thinking and confrontation. Brought to you in partnership with MPB, the largest global platform to buy, sell and trade used photo and video kit.
