Les Héroïnes d’Aujourd’hui

Kubra Khademi shakes up the way we look at public spaces, with an installation-journey through places that she renames after Afghan feminist resistants.

Who are urban spaces named after? In France, barely 5% of streets are named after women. To pay homage to today’s heroines, Kubra Khademi proposes an installation around the Condition Publique, through places that she renames after Afghan feminist resistant women. In Paris, in January 2022, she covered the plaques of the Allée du Commandant Massoud with the names of Hoda Khamoosh, Rokhshana Rezaie, Fowzia Wahdat and Frozan Safi, four leaders of the resistance against the Taliban. For Latitudes Contemporaines, she continues in Roubaix this work of recognition of the struggle of these women, who fight at the risk of their lives to obtain fundamental human rights.
