wake up hard skin a girl // 2020

// Photographs, series of 5

// Digital, Offset print on public billboards

"wake up hard skin a girl" represents the powerlessness of the individual in the answering of their gender question. Searching movements alternately lead to courage and pain, but never to the kind of "male" / "female" definition that is expected from then hegemonically.

After three days of display, the pictures in which Isaac Espinoza Hidrobo performed were attacked and destroyed.

After just one day, the works were attacked again. But we wouldn't let this stand.

The amazing team from the art spaces around Ebertplatz quickly repaired the work.

We were not touched again.
