“Guilty, Guilty, Guilty!(Towards a Feminist Criminology) is a trans- disciplinary exhibition of international positions that entails research based works. Drawing from an analysis of original files, historical case studies, personal accounts of the artists as well as the artistic imagination of the dynamics between law and gender are once again put up for negotiation. The artistic positions will focus on aspects such as.violence of bureaucracy, various forms of stigma, or the figure of the ‘unreliable’ female witness, thus seeking to map a socio-political sphere of pain that is usually excluded from view by the hermetics of the judicial apparatus, and silenced in dusty mountains of files. Curated and organized by:
Sonja Lau, Independent Curator and Stephane Bauer, Director of Kunstraum Kreusberg
New York Studio School For Painting Drawing and Sculpture (1972-76), University of Chicago (MA Political Science) 1965, University of Chicago (PhD Political Science and Social Psychology, all except dissertation) 1965-71, Mimar Sinan University (Ph.D Art History), Agnes Scott College (BA), Arnavutköy American College For Girls (Junior College 1961)
