Domestic Violence Exhibition (Video Case Study)
A street exhibition against domestic violence in Kosovo.
"Dhuna nuk fshehet mrena mureve" (ALB)
"Violence should not be hidden behind walls." (ENG)
In Kosovo, #DomesticViolence often remains hidden behind the walls of the home. As a result, many victims are afraid to report violence, and the rest have little understanding or lack of trust in the institutions.
Kosova Women's Network have gathered shocking stories and statistics of women and men who suffered from domestic violence in Kosovo.
PART 1 — BEHIND THE WALLS
TOML designed and built a room/maze in the main square of Prishtina, resembling a home where domestic violence occurs most. Through a #ShortFilm, #SetDesign, #SoundDesign, and other #InteractiveMaterials, visitors experienced a glimpse of a violent home and heard real stories of people who suffered from #DomesticAbuse.
PART 2 — THE FOUNDATION WALLS
Upon exiting from this maze, visitors came across installations, which provided detailed information about the roles and responsibilities of each institution, as well as visual guidance on how to report concerns if any of these institutions fail to help.
Some women* asked for help on the first day of the exhibition.
*The #exhibition is currently going to 5 other cities. We will publish the accurate numbers and reports at the end of the campaign.
