A photo exhibition on the complex issue of female genital mutilation. Photos by Claudia Link, curated by Sarah Martin (aethik.ch), for a project by IAMANEH Switzerland and EUSOBUL Senegal.
In Casamance, in southern Senegal, over two thirds of women and girls have their genitals circumcised, despite a legal ban. The photo exhibition takes a multi-layered look at this complex issue.
Anyone who campaigns against female genital mutilation - like the organizations behind the exhibition - must understand the background and ask themselves how social norms can be changed in a society. After all, circumcision means, among other things, that girls belong to their families and society. Many girls and women are also affected in Switzerland.
A visually powerful exhibition that makes you think. With pictures by Basel photographer Claudia Link, curated by Sarah Martin, for a project by IAMANEH Switzerland.
