WHO WILL WRITE THE HISTORY OF TEARS ARTISTS ON WOMEN’S RIGHTS

For over a century debate has raged over women’s reproductive rights. Differing visions of society and the state, the role of religion, and the limits of individual freedom clash. Who should have the deciding vote on this matter: the society, or women themselves? This issue can fundamentally divide people and provoke acts of aggression. The account of personal, individual experiences—and especially women’s perspective—is lost in the debate.

For years this concrete, human experience was taboo. Speaking of it was prohibited or frowned upon. The exhibition addresses this social denial and the existential nature of this experience. That is why we show the story of the fight for women’s reproductive rightsE1 — historical events demarcating the stages of this battle. We give voice to the participants, but also examine the theme of abortion through emotions that convey its existential and individual dimension. We can see all of this for example in the etchings by Paula RegoE2/Q11 from 1999, Abortion Series. These scenes of suffering, abandonment and despair played a key role in the fight for reproductive rights in PortugalE3/Q7 in 2007.
