Will you marry me ?
Sara Leghissa • Collectif Strasse
(Italie)

I’m fascinated with the difference between supposedly private and supposedly public and I try to engage the issue of what it means to live in a society that’s seemingly shock-proof, yet still is compelled to exercise secrecy.” Barbara Kruger

Will you marry me ? is a site-specific public lecture, driven by Sara Leghissa from the collective Strasse.

Drawing from personal experiences and interviews made in Prato, Ramallah, Marseille, Madrid, Lausanne and Nyon, the Italian artist takes us, through fly-posting, to certain common practices of illegality and dives particularly into the relationship between public space and illegality.

Asking the audience to be aware of the limits between legality and illegality, considering the fluidity of the law depending on where we are in the world, the historical time we live in and the sort of privileges we enjoy, Sara Leghissa examines either the way illegality can be used before everyone’s eyes or activist movements from all around the world who are able to circumvent the law without violating it.

How can we act around the law, she asks, to create possible forms of resistance in public space?
