Abecita Art Museum - Closed until 25 February 2021, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

All over the world, women's freedom is restricted. Education, sexual violence, war and climate change are some of the areas where women are hard hit.

Photographer Martina Holmberg and journalist Maria Hagström have collected several years of work from eleven different countries and show what it can be like to live "In a WoMAN's world". A world where there is also hope for change and freedom.

The exhibition shows a selection from seven of the places they have visited. Here we meet women who live deep in the jungles of the Congo, at a glacier in Bolivia and on the "Island of Women" in Guinea-Bissau. And women who cycle in Bangladesh, dance ballet in South Africa and find safety in a bus in Papua New Guinea.

Martina Holmberg is a freelance photographer and writer with assignments for mainly organizations with a focus on human rights. She works with long-term projects and has previously published four photo books and had several solo exhibitions.

MariaHagström is a freelance journalist and works for, among other things, Situation Sthlm, where she is a columnist and journalist with extensive experience of writing about homelessness and Swedish drug policy. Previously, she was a co-owner of Pockettidningen R for which she published 20 books.

Opening: 27 January at 18.30.

The exhibition runs from January 27 to May 15, 2022, at Abecita Popkonst & Foto.

Facts

|Translated by Google translation|

In the museum's shop, you will find unique photo books that are usually not available in the regular bookstore. The shop is run in collaboration with Neva Books, which is the country's largest player in the field. Neva was started and run by the zealots Erkki and Gunilla. Abecita Popkonst & Foto is the first partner in Sweden, but Neva can temporarily be seen as a Popup store on various occasions and at festivals. The range consists of everything from basic textbooks on photography to foreign collector's editions in very limited editions.
