Gender Violence

Every November 25th we celebrate International Day against Gender Violence.

We are going to work a little about the issue reflecting on several posters from Jornadas de Diseño Motiva (Gijón, 2004). These posters are magnificent and I would like you think about them. What are they saying to us? Choose your favourite and leave a reply about it: what the message is, what kind of visual elements use to express it, why you has chosen it…

We are going to comment the lyrics of these songs:

Love the way you lie by Eminem ft. Rihanna

Behind the wall by Tracy Chapman

Luka by Suzanne Vega

And finally: make up a mask as attacker or as attacked to do a photo-performance.

  1. Think about the face you would put if you were living under this kind of situation
  2. Take a self-portrait with this face
  3. Print it, so that your face fits a DIN A-4 page
  4. Add colours, lines… with markers, wax colours or collage
  5. Put rubber band on it in order to use it
