Description

Headdresses and head coverings are among the most powerful vehicles of cultural identity, referring variously to nationality, subculture, gender, ethnicity, religion, and profession. Yet cultural identity is also continuously evolving. ‘Hybrid Heads’ is a project by Daniela Dossi and the open collective studio Manoeuvre, a multidisciplinary, artist-run space in Ghent. Her long-term residency resulted in an open design method, a textile research project based on a visual and textual archive of head coverings from around the world, and a preliminary collection of hybrid headdresses. The project is an exhibition, an interactive installation, a web platform, and a design-educational programme.
