Other is a normcritical community-comics project. Trough photography, text and drawn elements we tell stories about how norms affect and limit our lives.
The startingpoint for the comics is the everyday life and experiences of the participants. The aim of the project is to create discussion and more space for diversity.
Some of the people in the images are the storytellers of the comics, others are people unrelated to the stories. Other is a ongoing project, at the moment I work with LGBTQIA+- people and minorities within the minority email email@example.com if you would like to participate.
The project is organised by Heidi Lunabba in collaboration with Sateenkaariperheet ry. Funders are Nordic Culture Point, Taike, Svenska Kulturfonden, Konstsamfundet, Oscar Öflunds stiftelse, the city of Helsinki and Suomen Kulttuurirahasto.
A warm thank you to all participants!
I don’t like it when they say mom
In collaboration with Hanna, Helsinki 2020
I’m Hanna, I want to be a Youtuber. My family is me and dude. It used to be me and my mom but now that he is a man I call him dude. My dad used to live with us too, and now he has his own home.
Was it fun when you and the old man went on that Youtuber cruise? Yeah, I saw Tuure in the elevator.
Hanna your mom is coming now to pick you up, I’ll see you tomorrow!
My dude is coming. I don’t like it when people say ‘mom’ and it makes dude sad too.
I will tell them again that I’m called dude and that they need to tell this to new employees too. The staff shouldn’t hurt you by using the wrong word for your parent.
