Project info

During my time in in Vienna, I hope to carry out deeper research into how we build identity in the present day, particularly in relation to the spaces we inhabit. In turn, how do our individual and collective identities affect our perception of these spaces? As the popularity of right-wing politics increases across the world, those marginalised due to their race, gender, sexuality, and religion, amongst other aspects of their existence, must find a way to construct and celebrate their identity in a way that feels hopeful. In the neoliberal age, in which our worth is decided by our contribution to capitalist society, must we look to history in order to move beyond this, or can we now look to the future?
