A unique exhibition in Brussels showcases the stories of student rape victims by recreating the outfits they wore during their assault.Inspired by a project created by students at the University of Kansas.
Delphine Goossens, a worker in prevention services in the Belgian capital, took the original testimonies of the Kansas students, translated them into Dutch and French, and gathered pieces of her and her co-workers’ own clothing to represent the outfits described in the exhibition, “What Were You Wearing?”.
The exhibition consists of several outfits, including a pair of pyjamas, a bathing suit, a child’s school uniform and police attire and is aimed at increasing awareness against victim-shaming.
