How does society see people living on the streets and in precarious situations? The general perception often leaves little or no room for the human being, their dignity and their own identity. Organising a photo exhibition with these people is therefore a project that is always (too) full of meaning. What do they identify themselves with? How do they imagine themselves in spite of the clichés and stereotypes? How do they see themselves? Photographer Julie de Bellaing has carried out two photo projects in co-construction with homeless people.
If you would like to host one of these exhibitions at your premises, please contact Serena Alba.
‘Homeless but not less’ is a co-creative project involving women without a fixed home, a photographer and an art therapist, built around the notion of identity. It is also a picture exhibition which will take place from September 19th to October 10th at BEES coop and from October 10th to November 7th at Boentje Café in Schaerbeek
In February and March 2019, Julie de Bellaing shared a few glimpses of the daily life of Claude, Frank, Rabah & Sébastien, regulars at DoucheFLUX. Four completely different individuals, with their own histories and backgrounds, but which society labels collectively as ‘(ex-)homeless’.
