Visual artist Ben Benaouisse (b. 1971, Familleureux) chooses one powerful pose in this performance.

Is this man being frisked by the police? Are we looking at a Christ Figure’s back? Or is this an icon of victimization? By continuously putting his performances in a different context – sometimes unannounced – Benaouisse emphasizes his own autonomy as well as the power of the spectator’s interpretation. In L’Etage d’Euphrosine you can also see his critical visual art about the current refugee challenges.
