Diploma project, ECAL 2018


by Karla Hiraldo Voleau

As long as I can remember there has been a running joke in my family: one should never date a Dominican. My interactions with Dominican men have been anyway always limited, since I was treated as an outsider, as a tourist on the island. Eventually, family prohibitions and prejudices only pushed me to gain my own insight into the Dominican culture. Engaging into a performative process, I went on to pursue an immersive investigation as a tourist that travels in search for love.
