Was macht unsere Identität aus? Wie werden wir von anderen wahrgenommen? Im Rahmen der Ausstellung Somewhere in the world. Afrikanisch-Niederösterreichische Begegnungen gibt es im Forum Frohner die Möglichkeit sich gemeinsam mit Künstlerin Helena Eribenne mit dem Thema Identität und Selbstdarstellung zu beschäftigen und selbst künstlerisch tätig zu werden.
Die intensive Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Identität und damit einhergehenden Stereotypen bildet die Grundlage für die eigene künstlerische Herangehensweise. Jede/r Teilnehmer/in gestaltet im Rahmen des Workshops eine Maske, durch die eine besondere Aussage transportiert wird. Helena Eribenne gibt dafür einen Einblick in die Geschichte von Masken und Verkleidungen und unterstützt die Teilnehmer/Innen im freien Gestaltungsprozess.
