From 12 December, Nobel Peace Centre
The 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition sheds light on how sexual violence has been, and still is, used as a weapon of war worldwide.
Sexual violence has been used as a weapon of war since the dawn of time. Systematic rape, violent sexual assault and sexual slavery are used to spread fear, reward soldiers and exterminate entire religious and ethnic minorities.
Exhibition photographer Cristina de Middel portrays the topic of sexual violence in conflict and war in a series of staged photographs taken in Nigeria in 2018, using local volunteers. She has also spent time with the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureates: Dr Denis Mukwege, the Congolese surgeon who has helped reconstruct the shattered bodies of thousands of victims of sexual violence, and Nadia Murad, a member of Iraq’s Yazidi minority and a survivor of sexual violence and slavery.
