Inauguration: 19 August 2015, 6 p.m.

4 short digital stories
21 self-portraits of women in Bangalore

The Delhi gang-rape case in 2012 changed the perception of India as a whole, at least in parts of the world. But what do Indian women think about the situation?

Sabine Felber worked with Blank Noise on a project guided by the “I never ask for it” campaign slogan. She found 4 protagonists with stories of universal relevance. The digital stories that make up her project comprise the narrators’ voice, selfportraits, portraits, music and short video sequences.

Sabine also worked with 21 women from different social backgrounds on self-portraits, a method she has used regularly in the past. The act of taking a selfportrait - with the help of a remote control - with the camera sitting on a tripod - gives the person in front of the camera nearly 100 percent control and responsibility for the outcome. The interpretation of the photographer is eliminated because the photographer is simply not there. Without the possibility to make sure that they look “right” - no mirrors, no double-checking - the participants take possession of their own image/identity. The accompanying text offers a short personal reflection about safety in public space.

Free entry! All are welcome!

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
