Posters have been plastered on buildings and bus stops in Europe showing images of very famous women who appear to be brutalized… in an attempt to grab people by the collar so that they better understand domestic violence.
Artist Alexandre palombo falsified images of the vice president Kamala harris, with the British Dutchess Kate Middleton, Queen letizia from Spain, French politician Christine Lagarde and others … making them appear as victims of DV in her series, “She reported it, but she was killed anyway.”
The caption under the bruised faces reads: “She denounced him – But no one believed her – But she was left alone – But she was not protected – But he was not arrested – But she was killed anyway. “
The posters have been seen in Milan and Spain, and possibly beyond.
The artist says her ultimate goal is “to draw attention to the poor policy responses to the problem of gender-based violence and to highlight the ineffective system for supporting and protecting victims.”
He continues… “Why should a woman report violence if after reporting she is not protected by institutions and ends up being killed anyway? How can a woman victim of abuse and violence still have confidence in institutions? “
