Silenced Womb

In Silenced Womb Petra Kroon examines the age-old taboo surrounding menopause. What does it mean to be systematically silenced for centuries? What effect does it have on how you are represented? How you are treated? And how you behave? She explores these questions from three perspectives: the medical world, society and photography. She investigates what this invisibility looks like, and analyses what it does to her and to her allies. The work also proposes new forms of representation of menopause in order to remove the taboo and encourage her audience to speak more openly about the topic.
