The second-year aesthetics students are doing an exciting new art project! Their work is to aesthetically express their reflections on anti sexual violence and respect.
To give inspiration, Mathilda Aguilar from nxtME, a nonprofit organization that helps incest survivors, came to the school and held 4 lectures on the topic of respect. She talked about respect on a societal, communal and individual level, and told the story of her own experience with incest. The topic revoked a lot of emotions that first manifested itself with silence and later heated discussions. With these discussions and emotions as inspiration, the students are now creating individual or group based art pieces. To mention a few: a monologue, a sculpture, a dance, a collection of clothes and own written music. All with the theme respect.
All of these art pieces will be showcased in the evening of Thursday the 22nd November at Musikaliska by Nybrokajen, 17:30 - 19:00. Anyone is welcome to enjoy beautiful and interesting art while learning about the importance of respect.
