Medea’s Daughters a project by Magdalena Chowaniec, Corinne Eckenstein and Aslı Kışlal
14 years and older
Who are the descendants and cultural heirs of Medea? We are! We nurses, cashiers, hairdressers, cleaners and actresses who are not seen or heard because of our origin, skin colour, sexual orientation or political views. The ones, on whose backs politics is made, but who are not part of it. But suddenly we are considered systemically important to society. Now we are freeing ourselves from our ascribed functions and are uncompromisingly and demandingly coming out to the public. We, Medea’s daughters, continue to set out for new shores, bring fresh wind and unknown practices, are the engine of society and the spark of truth!
NO MORE NICENESS!
