Scar | Exhibition and Debate

The Scar exhibition is the result of a radical life change: four years ago the photographer Cosmin Bumbuț and the journalist Elena Stancu moved in a trailer to work on a project on the culture of violence in Romania. This theme will be the central topic of a debate with the authors and Andreea Bragă, executive director of FILIA Centre, on Thursday, March 15th, starting at 19.30.

The exhibition is organised with support from the Sensiblu Foundation.

Cosmin Bumbuț: 

Four years ago I moved in a trailer together with my girlfriend, the journalist Elena Stancu, to work on a project on the culture of violence in Romania. We tried to understand why is it that Romanian men hurt the ones they’re supposed to love the most: their children and wives.

 I filmed a woman who was in prison because, after years of suffering, she had killed the man who was beating her. I met a teenage girl who had been whipped, beaten with a chain and with the vineyard rods by her father. I photographed a mother of nine who was being tortured by her husband and who was beaten to death two years later. I met a woman in a shelter, the wife of a police man, whom I didn’t photograph out of fear that her husband might find her and kill her.

 I took photos of priests who were telling women to stick by their husbands and bear it all, of parents who told me that beating their kids is a means to make them learn how to behave, of men who had killed their girlfriends.

These images don’t simply tell the stories of the victims. These images tell the stories of communities who tolerate domestic violence and who “don’t meddle in other families’ business”.

The opening hours for the exhibition are 16.00 - 19.00, from Monday to Sunday. .
