How can we actually protest as designers? What forms of protest are appropriate for us? How can we show our own personal reflection? How can we talk about ourselves and at the same time talk about society? How to criticize without Eurocentrism and to reproduce clichés? What is the away from individual to structural problem to talk about?
And the answer to this for this project is: We should tell our stories. Because a good story brings identification, brings commonality about a social problem. Every time we tell a story, we build bridges; we discover ourselves in the lines.
This project is a sampler of experiences with gender relations, patriarchy in Iran and Germany plus describing structural power relations. Such as: selected gender at birth, gender inequality in the education system, public space in the city, security and violence, stereotypes, work and entertainment, gender pay gap, housework, child-rearing and everything a person has to experience every day in life!
