What Were You Wearing ?

What were you wearing that day? is an installation at the Martime Community Centre in Brussels, that recreates the clothes worn by survivors of sexual violence when they were attacked. The exhibition consists of 18 outfits, which were put together based on the description given by survivors of sexual assault. The clothes include pajamas, tracksuit bottoms, and dresses, and each is accompanied by a note by the survivor on the attack.

The exhibit continues through January 20th

Our local Women's Centre (which I work for) also set up a display in early Dec and will be shown again in Feb. It was a hard display to set up; tissues and shoulders were handy for the volunteers.

Difficult subject matter. I think the original was set up in Kansas but these powerful exhibitions have been popping up everywhere because rape has no boundaries.
