Many facets and multilayered experiences, in all their simultaneity and complexity, are part of the Black Identity. I examine one aspect of this complexity in regard to representation and selfidentification in the works How much time do you want? (video, 21 min) and Resilience (photographs). In my talk I would like to present these two works, discuss their mutual effects and share the questions and challenges that accompany during the process of creation.
