“Safer Space” Exhibition June 4 – July 11 – Villa Vida Cafe
“corncerning trans murders, turkey is ranked 1st in europe and ranked 9th worldwide. trans people and lgbtiqa+ individuals are not under any law protection in the state constitution in turkey. trans and lgbtiqa+ individuals are subjects of hate crimes, violence, psychological oppression, unemployment, mobbing at work. homophobia and transphobia in public are left unpunished by the state. in addition, lgbtiqa+ individuals are struggling under community and state violence to create their own safer spaces, but society pressure and state law are trying to destroy the ‘safer spaces’ that lgbtiqa+ individuals are trying to build, alongside while facing various hate crimes. the goal of this exhibition is to create a remote network of solidarity with especially trans and lgbtiqa+ individuals in turkey here in vienna in memory of the ‘transgender day of remembrance’, and also use art as a tool of making those struggles visible and to use art as a defense mechanism against such discrimination.’’
