On Rape – And Institutional Failure

In an assemblage of her own and found photographs, reports, quotes, videos and artifacts, the Catalan artist Laia Abril (*1986) devotes her extensive research to the topic of structurally enabled rape.


Across different time horizons, cultural practices and media, she traces the normalization of misogynistic ways of thinking and acting in society and politics, without resorting to explicit depictions of sexual violence.

Rather, the focus is on traditional ideas, laws and institutionalized failures that maintain power dynamics and dependency relationships and thus enable rape. It is the second chapter of her long-term project A History of Misogyny, in which Abril responds to the diverse forms of systemic violence against women. She counters the speechlessness that is often felt when it comes to this topic with a moving and political narrative and immediately appeals to the responsibility of society as a whole.

C/O Berlin presents the artist's first institutional solo exhibition in Germany.
