Huda Beydoun, ‘Tagged and Documented ’, 2013, Ayyam Gallery

Employing a recurring ‘Minnie Mouse’ figure in the series, Tagging the Undocumented, artist Huda Beydoun creates a photographic linkage between pop culture, graffiti art references, and social issues. In the series, the reference to Minnie Mouse functions as a stand-in for the chasm the artist feels but is unable to represent between herself and other or disprivileged factions of society. These are people she sees but does not necessarily have a chance to engage with in a direct or meaningful way, hence she interacts with them through the process of making art.
