‚People cannot be judged by their appearance, just as the water of the sea cannot be measured with a bushel.‘ – Confucius
Stigmatization of people is a powerful force that shapes not only our own perception, but also that of others. By recognizing the harmful effects of stigmatization and working to break down the beliefs that sustain it, we can create a more equal society. This is the focus of my exhibition series „Gentle[hu]man“.
