Event Details

The National Identity Project explores how national identity affects people’s lives. The project toured the South West in the form of the Camper Obscura, a campervan that acted as the space for taking portraits and collecting stories. Artist Monika Fischbein’s practice explores the many forms of identity and narrative construction with research investigating the lyrical self in image making, incorporating national identity and its manifestation within the medium. After embarking on this journey 3 years ago by exploring her own national identity, she has expanded her project in association with Fotonow CIC with the desire to discover the stories and faces by creating an authentic dialogue with communities around this topic. The project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
