Women in Mining, 2022/23
Exhibition / art project with the Mozambican photographer Yassmin Forte, sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development in cooperation with the Goethe Zentrum (ccma) and the AHK in Maputo.
From 30.10.2022 to 04.11.2022, female workers of two gold mines in Tete, Mozambique, called Cooperativa dos Mineiros Artesanais Eduardo Mondlane, were invited to draw a picture about their work in the mines. Drawing skills did not play a role. After the drawing actions and after a so-called artistic appropriation process of the collected pictures, the artist Doris Graf developed, similar to previous CityX art projects, 9 pictograms from them, which reflect the drawn representations in a condensed form of the women regarding their work in the gold mines. From 22.03.23 to 04.04.2023 the pictograms were presented in the outdoor area of the Goethe Center (ccma) in Maputo.
