21 γυναίκες φωτογράφοι, στέκονται απέναντι στη βία, στον σεξισμό, στον συντηρητισμό και στην ανισότητα δημιουργώντας την πρωτοβουλία “WeChangeThePicture”, ως μια κίνηση εκδήλωσης συμπαράστασης και υποστήριξης προς όλες τις γυναίκες.

21 γυναίκες φωτογράφοι παραχωρούμε, η καθεμία, από ένα φωτογραφικό μας έργο, το οποίο θα διατεθεί σε 21 αριθμημένα και υπογεγραμμένα αντίτυπα, με σκοπό να συνδράμουμε στο έργο του Διοτίμα - Κέντρο Γυναικείων Μελετών και Ερευνών / CRWI Diotima, που παρέχει νομική και ψυχολογική στήριξη στις γυναίκες που βρίσκουν το θάρρος να μιλήσουν.

Η εικόνα πρέπει ν΄ αλλάξει! Ας προσπαθήσουμε να την αλλάξουμε όλοι μαζί.

Συμμετέχουν: Αθανασία Παπαδοπούλου | Αλεξάνδρα Ρίμπα | Αλεξία Πρασσά |  Αρέτα Περιστέρι | Άρτεμις Πυρπίλη | Έλενα Ντι γκιόσια | Ελένη Παπαϊωάννου | Καλλιόπη Πασσιά | Κάρμεν Πολυδώρου | Κορνηλία Σιδηρά | Λία Ναλμπαντίδου | Λίλη Ζουμπούλη | Μαγδαληνή Μπαρδάκα | Μαγδαληνή Κούρτη | Μαρία Καρκανάκη | Μαρία Χουλάκη | Όλγα Δέϊκου | Σοφία Τολίκα | Στεφανία Ορφανίδου | Τάνια Καμίδου | Χλόη Πίσσα

As 21 female photographers, we stand against violence, sexism, conservatism and inequality. We created the initiative “WeChangeThePicture” to show our support towards all women.With this action we are trying to stand next to all women who have been victims of verbal, physical and sexual violence within their family or work environment.

The project ‘Unseen’ (Afaneis) is featured in the Kunst (Art) section of the Exantas Magazineissue 30, published in Berlin in December 2019. 

Exantas is a Greek-German magazine, that focuses on political, social, historical and cultural issues.

‘Unseen’ (Αφανείς) is composed by a text and a series of images referring to the spatial and social segregation in the city of Berlin, the endless process of (re)integration, the social discriminations, the search of an identity, the displacement of the unseen of the city.

Many thanks to the redactor Georgios Laios for his invitation.
