With the KHM animation group: #OrangeDaysKHM, #SayNOtoViolence
The Orange Days, an initiative of the international United Nations campaign "16 Days of Activism" and the "Orange Days Cologne", will take place again this year from November 25 to December 10. And the KHM would also like to send a clear signal on December 25, the international day "Against Violence against Women", with a special aesthetic event: a video mapping on the front of the Trinity Church.
Since 2019, the KHM has been actively involved in the "Orange The World" and "Orange Days Cologne" campaigns to raise awareness of and combat gender-based violence. In 2019, we carried out a video mapping at the Trinitatis Church to commemorate the Mirabal sisters and their resistance against the dictator Trujillo. Due to the pandemic, we switched to augmented reality (AR) and animation in 2020 to continue participating. In 2021, we expanded our collaboration with universities in Mexico and Colombia and in 2022, our focus was on the situation of women in Iran, which was highlighted through artistic interventions.
Violence against women and girls is a global problem that we are tackling with seriousness and determination. It begins with misogynistic language, sexist jokes and insults and extends to oppression, sexual assault, domestic violence, harassment, human trafficking, genital mutilation and femicide, the murder of women because of their sex, and the murder of women because of their gender.
We have adopted the color orange, a symbol for a future without violence, as our banner, in line with the global "Orange The World" campaign, which is supported by the United Nations' "UN Women" organization.
Join us on November 25 at 7 pm in front of the Trinitatis Church for this important event.
Let's take a stand together against violence against women and contribute to change through art and awareness-raising.
With the support of the KHM Gender Equality.
