PINK. GLITTER. VIOLENCE.
Sparkles. The pink glitter and the shattered glass are sparkling together on the asphalt. Symbols that were fused during the protesters’ rage in the night of the 16th August 2019 in Mexico City. This fusion radically changed the connotation of pink glitter but also started a social discussion about violence. On one side, the violence that kills several women in Mexico every day. On the other, the violence of the women trashing bus stations, monuments and police stations as a form of protest. Thereby these mostly young women all of a sudden destroyed the conventional expectations of a woman with a bag of pink glitter in her hands.
