On Saturday April 3, 2021 at 16:30 and 17:30 at Midhet el Soltan (Tunis Medina), discover “The Dido problem” performance-conference by Jordanian-German artist duo Areej Huniti and Eliza Goldox. “The Dido problem” is a film and intervention project, the culmination of the artists’ residency with L’Art Rue from January to April 2021.
The work tackles the politics of water and the reconstruction of mythology. The starting point is reinventing the myth of Dido and interrogating her resistance to oppression and the territory. Through digital and material speculations, the film takes on the notion of forced mutation and historical fabrication in the ecological and social spheres. In following the histories and cycles of water, “The Dido problem” addresses the issue of the complex circulation of matter and desire and how it is mutated by exploitation.
