I Wish This Would Be Your Color

This artistic seminar aimed to explore transhumanist concepts through the use offace masks. The focus was on critically questioning the history and contemporaryculture of masks, as well as introducing new ideas. Masks are seen as a way totranscend one's own identity and engage with non-human life forms, as observed inanimist cultures. They provide agency to spirits, ancestors, or natural forces.However, in a contemporary context where gods are not widely acknowledged andnature is often viewed as "the other," the significance of this practice is worthexamining.

Identity and anonymity are fraught with political implications and power dynamics. Inthe digital age, the right to anonymity is constantly under threat, with biometric databeing stored and centralized without consent. Therefore, concealment can be seenas a political act. The seminar explored how concealment and the use of masks cancontribute to self-determination and protect gender identity and other forms of self-expression from external influence.
