graphic art series

pink pressure

»when a female in a position of public authority, such as cologne’s mayor, is pointing the finger at women for attracting sexual assaults, you know that sadly we’ve got a long, long way to go in the fight for gender equality.« this quote* underlines the social restrictions and subliminal criticism german women are underlying even if german society is claiming equal rights. 

confronting those assumptions the graphic art series pink pressure frames this outer control that either restricts or exploits the female body and its social role, its sexuality and its nature.
