Amado Alfadni

Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Sudan
Amado Alfadni is an Egyptian-born Sudanese artist. His childhood was composed of two environments: the Cairene street and the Sudanese home. The relationship and tension between the two strongly influenced his view of both cultures, leading him to question the concepts of identity, ethnicity, and nationality. His artistic practice focuses on research and documenting ignored historical events. His work discusses the relationship between the included and the excluded, starting conversations about identity and politics. By working with forgotten historical events and current state policies, he raises questions of power dynamics between the individual and authority on a social and political level, giving voice to political minorities. 
Alfadni received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award for his Askari project..
