Blood Donation Circle / Am I Overpopulation?
Blood Donation Circle (2001): El-Hassan's performance was inspired by the absurdity of the accusation of collective guilt. In this case, the performance focuses on the bewilderment caused by the media coverage and presentation of September 11, which introduced a charge of mass guilt that targeted all people of Arab and Muslim descent. On the subjective level, the performance playfully addresses the question: how, and with what sort of an image of the Arab, am I to identify myself now?
R.thinking/Dreaming about overpopulation, (2001-2003). T-Shirt 2008, produced by Al-Ma'mal: Roza El-Hassan in cooperation with Salam Haddad for the design of the Extra-Territoria t-shirt with the slogan "I am overpopulation".
Extra-Territoria was initiated in 1999 in Belgrade during the Yugoslavian war by the artists Roza El-Hassan and Milica Tomic. It is an open platform for cooperative artistic projects and political dialogues. The first set of overpopulation t-shirts was designed in 1999 and distributed by Milica Tomic and Roza El-Hassan. Based on the invitation of Al-Ma'mal foundation, Roza El-Hassan added a question mark to the earlier version. Salam Haddad suggested a design for the Palestinian version in the form of a stamp.
