A selection of Diva Opaque

A selection of 150 images of Diva Opaque: Guardians of Intimacy, our former exhibition at Schrank8 Gallery, Amsterdam. Diva Opaque is an eccentric image collection of snapshots, carefully manipulated pictures and skillful photomontages, all portraying veiled divas. The images come from the secret collection of Scarf_whiz80, a persona that we invented. He glorifies the headscarf who in contradiction with today’s sensational hijab-hype.
This work is a critique on societal norms of gender, race, religion and sexuality, including destructions of stereotypes and ideologies.
With today’s expansion of identity politics and the booming prosecution of middle-class, narrow-minded morality in the discourses of popular culture and public policy, we state the veil as the neo black.
