The Egyptian artist is currently working in St. Gallen within Pro Helvetia's artist in residence program. In the lobby of the Kunst Halle Taman will – amongst other things – talk about his project «Password: Burka», which was his reaction to the aggressive poster campaign for the minaret initiative. By graphic modification the Muslim artist reversed the statement of the posters and placed them in Zurich and St. Gallen. The video recordings of those nightly performances will be part of the project presentation.
