#MeToo in China Exhibition
- Muirhead Tower - Foyer
- Monday 6 June (09:00) - Tuesday 21 June 2022 (17:00)
IDD are hosting a free exhibition that charts the history of the Chinese #MeToo movement since 2018 and seeks to resonate with people beyond and across borders. By using a variety of visual, audio and textual materials, this exhibition presents the personal struggles of sexual assault survivors and collective feminist actions against sexual violence in the Chinese context.
It is inspired by the #MeToo in China exhibitions held in Chengdu, Guangzhou, New York in 2019. Besides bringing the highlights of these previous exhibitions to the UK, this exhibition possesses new elements and perspectives. Particularly, it presents the Chinese feminists’ activities in support of the Chinese #MeToo movement in the UK.
Birmingham is the second stop of the #MeToo in China exhibition 2022 tour in the UK, after its first successful stop at Cambridge. We hope that, through (re-) telling the stories of the #MeToo movement in China, this exhibition can heal and empower sexual violence survivors and feminist activists from different racial, gender, sexual and social backgrounds. We believe this exhibition will help keep the #MeToo movement known, alive and in momentum.
The Exhibition team is made up of feminist volunteers based in the UK.
An interactive workshop Sexual Assault, an act from "Our Vaginas, Ourselves: Screening & Workshop” will be hosted on the last day (21st June 2022) of the exhibition in Muirhead Tower Room 420. This workshop is registration only.
It is open from Monday 6th June 2022 - Tuesday 21st June 2022 from 9am-5pm and closed during the weekend.
