HI GENTLEMAN, BY ROZHGAR MUSTAFA

13:25 - By ART FOR HUMAN RIGHTS 0


A Kurdish artist who lives in Sulaimani where she graduated from the university of fine arts in 2004, she teaches art in secondary school.
In her own words, Rozhgar Mustafa describes this artwork: "I used to produce my own bra when I was a teenager, because I couldn’t deal with my adulthood, my relatives told me that it is impossible to go out and play with my friends as because I passed my age twelve. Therefore I was thinking of hiding my breast to appear like a boy, and I usually had my hair cut by my brother as exactly as a boy for next four years. Since I had passed that period I always found myself under an extremely difficult social and political condition, which takes a decision based on my gender, from then I have been demanding the position of being a girl or a boy."
