In their transdisciplinary artistic practice, Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme have for many years been concerned with how inclusion and exclusion manifest themselves in bodily experiences, in the imaginary and symbolic realm. Against this backdrop, the problem of breathing already appears in their series of works And Yet My Mask Is Powerful (2016-2019), opening up interrelated questions about the value and protection of bodies, of life. In the SODA lecture, they discuss the knowledge that is needed to breathe where you are not supposed to do so: “Breathing as a physical and existential condition is also a question of continuing to be, continuing to claim yourself, to claim space and to claim narrative, to claim your story and your testimony.”
