Women's Beijing Sphere

Women

Cristina Biaggi. Women's Beijing Sphere, 1995.

Description:
This collage contains photographs of women’s faces taken at the Fourth World Conference of Women in Beijing, China in 1995. The world (the sphere) consists of 52% women, most of whom have not participated in the decisions involving our planet since the advent of patriarchy. This piece attempts to capture the feeling of wholeness, of connectedness, of vitality, of transformation, of extreme emotion - from joy to outrage - that was being experienced daily at the conference, and that will provide the basic nourishment that is needed for global change.
