On going since 2004 | Participatory work in progress

Participants’ contributions – the poems and prose they write, and the stories they tell – breathe life into this project and make it grow. For me, it is vital to involve victims-survivors of sexual violence in expanding the spectrum of remembrance and visibility.
Since 2004, countless women* have shared their personal experience of sexual violence by taking part in this installation or writing an email to me.
The stories bear witness to the horror that children in our midst face day after day. They bear witness to the failure of society as a whole, and of individuals in particular, to face up to these crimes. And they bear witness to the courage, anger, and resourcefulness of the victims-survivors, who carry on living, day after day.
If you want to contribute, you can write hear or send me a poem, a line or two, a longer story, or several texts by email – just as you like, with or without your name: kontakt@renatebuehn.de
