NET ‘ALENG: You Are NOT Invited! is the final manifestation of four events. It follows MISSION 21: Where young people and artists come together (2018), SHEMACHO: I challenge I (2012), and NEGROWHITE: Identity & Image (2010).

For the Other to exist, artist encountered others. As event of abundant love and compelling contradictions, exhibition relates to socio-politics. This presentation includes installations manifested as democratic form of life-like art; related to a pedagogy to avoid polarizing politics. As didactic focused on the problem of the Nation State, event relates to the blurring of boundaries between public and private based on Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto and to Alida Neslo’s non descriptive Alakondre Manifesto. In this pursuit, the ‘solo’ show -aiming at political justice, personal limitation and social changeability- pursuits to challenge the imagination of spectators.
