WOMEN IN THE DARK – an international art project, initiated by Franziska Greber in 2016 – presentation and launch in Switzerland

Women write their experiences, secrets, fears, anger, hopes and wishes on white shirts. So far the project has been implemented in Zimbabwe, Seychelles, Mauritius, China and India. An exhibition was already held in Beijing, and the next one will be this November in Kolkata.

Professionals from women’s and youth organizations are invited to take shirts to distribute them to women and girls. Women and girls can also write on-site on shirts. An exhibition in Switzerland is planned.
