“Madder and Madder and Hotter and Hotter”: A photography exhibition on the George Floyd Protests

1 min read

Including photography, video, documentary and archival material, “Madder and Madder and Hotter and Hotter” remembers the 2020 uprisings for George Floyd and attempts to shed light on the history of racial violence in the United States. Honoring the world remembrance day for George Floyd (May 25), the exhibition seeks to convey to Greek audiences the spirit, complexity and demands of the protests, and create a space for reflection on the different mechanisms that institutionalize and perpetuate racial and social inequalities and are at the root of police brutality. Given the current historical circumstances, the exhibition will include additional research material that seeks to examine the historic connections between the African American civil rights movement and the Palestinian liberation movement.

“Tell them about how you’re never really a whole person if you remain silent, because there’s always that one little piece inside you that wants to be spoken out, and if you keep ignoring it, it gets madder and madder and hotter and hotter, and if you don’t speak it out one day it will just up and punch you in the mouth from the inside.” (Audrey Lorde)

In this revival, Madder and Madder and Hotter and Hotter (which was first mounted in 2021) will feature works by: Giuseppe Malpasso, Owen Rogers, Fejzullah Sadiku, Carmen Griffin Whiip, Marcelo Woloski.
