Statement


Anisia Affek is a Slavic artist based in Berlin. In her multi-disciplinary work, she aims to question our understanding of national and self-identity. She reflects on the role that mythology and folklore playing in the process of shaping and re-shaping modern nationalism.
Affek's practice is based on academic writing, installations, and printed matter that challenge our perception of belonging and the recognition of «we» versus «they». Her work also have a personal aspect, as it is deeply influenced by her Ukrainian-Russian-Mongolian roots and her growing up as an immigrant child in Israel. She works with different mediums, such as photography, film, collages, and textiles, as she provokes our ideologies and ethics about who we are and where do we belong.
