The exhibition is a series of impressive photographs with citations from the book United Under a Red Umbrella, made by former sex worker Mariska Majoor and her daughter Robin Haurissa. They traveled around the world to speak with "colleagues" and activists advocating for the rights of sex workers. Robin took the photos and Mariska held interviews.
At the grand opening of the exhibition, Majoor and Haurissa will give a presentation on their project. Various members from the sex workers community will be present to speak on the current state of prostitution in the Netherlands. There will be time for questions from the audience, followed by drinks. The language of the evening will (mainly) be English. The photographs will be on display until mid January 2020.
The book United under a Red Umbrella will be available for a "student price" of 15 Euro on the evening of the grand opening.
United Under a Red Umbrella is finanded by the Amsterdamse Prostitutie en Gezondheid centrum www.pg292.nl
