AUTOGRAPH ABP: SHIFTING AND SACRED SITES

“Investigating the ways performative practices challenge prejudice, fear and violence towards the body in society.”

“This event takes Aida Silvestri’s Unsterile Clinic, an exhibition to raise awareness of the widespread practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), as a cue to reflect on the gendered, cultural body as a site of struggle, recuperation, and possible transformations.
