EsRAP in conversation with Setareh Shahbazi and Nina Tabassomi
In the context of the exhibition die Wissen, Esra Özmen (EsRAP) will be in conversation with the curators. EsRAP, the Viennese hip-hop duo Esra and Enes Özmen, combine German, Turkish and Arabic in their lyrics and transform these languages poetically. Their videos are part of the third chapter of the TAXISPALAIS trilogy on togetherness that is currently on view in Innsbruck. The title of the exhibition Ich bin anders, weil ich kann das quotes a line from the song Yalla Habibi, in which EsRAP solemnly assert their multiple affiliations. In their music videos, EsRAP bring forth complex forms of musical, linguistic and visual belonging, thereby enabling a sense of community and a political imagination for all of us.
