The travelling exhibition "Whore or Saint" goes to Hamburg
Where FREELENS Galerie, Hamburg
Time Mon - Thur: 11am - 6pm, Fri: 11am - 4pm
On 17 February, the exhibition “Whore or Saint – Being a Woman in Italy” opens in Hamburg at the FREELENS Galerie, which can be seen until 13 April. The work, which was also published as a book, is celebrating its German premiere at FREELENS Galerie in an elaborately designed exhibition conceived by Lupo Burtscher.
In their work, Gilli and Bachmann show an Italian society torn apart by contradictions. The two journalists deal with prevailing ideals of beauty, the dominance of the church, the influence of entertainment television and violence against women, but they also repeatedly accompany protagonists who stand for a new strong awakening and for a diversity of lived womanhood. What is special is that at every point in their project, in addition to the journalistic quality, the duo’s personal solidarity is palpable.
