Women's bodies / Sex objects and targets


Clarisse Rebotier offers a photo series inspired by the feminist slogan "On display or veiled - a rock or a hard place?". Sensually and with a sense of humor, the series addresses women's right not to be sex objects.

Evelin Stermitz, with the video "I don't love you any more" illustrates the slogans "[...] saying 'yes' also means being able to say 'no' [...]" and "I don't want to be the woman of your dreams, I want to be the woman of my own."

Women's bodies / Bearing witness to suffering


X.Tin paints wounded or tormented women. Women who have been doubly punished, because they're women and because humiliation, preferably public, is added to their torment. Women who are wounded in their flesh, their actions and their dreams.
