Red Dawns 7

"Women/Body/Stories" is a photographic survey on local women living around the area of the Art Center and their awareness of the body. The female relation to the body has been influenced by alterations in the society during history and the social environment wherein women are living. Through photographs and text, this artistic exploration will narrate personally experienced histories and relations to the body of women of different age living at the beginning of the 21st century, all having an unequal experience of life and therefore also of their body.
