EXILES

A trans-media project

Exiles is a trans-media project about seven women who decided to move away from their husbands and form the society in order to break with the constant violence they suffered and to find the freedom that, due to its gender, was denied to them.

 

This process involved working with different media –photography, video, text and drawing–, and took different forms –a website, a film and a photo series and a photobook–, that constitute a body of work whose elements interact with each other and whose narrative weaves different stories, link unconnected horizons and make metaphors about central issues for women in Mexico: the violence against them, the lack of respect for their right to self-determination, and the need to break with the social constraints that gender implies.
