What my Father Put Inside my Vagina

In an interview about her exhibition titled "What My Father Put Inside My Vagina," named after the literal sexual abuse to which her father subjected her as a child, Alma Lily Rainer talks about sexual violence. She posits that it "is not a personal issue, it is not a women's issue, it is a problem for society as a whole" and explains how feminism gave her a voice and the courage to speak out.

This time, Apolena Rychlíková‘s guest is Alma Lily Rainer, an artist whose work deals with rape culture. Her latest exhibition, titled “What My Father Put Inside My Vagina,” can be seen starting on February 2nd at the Artwall Gallery in Prague. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of debates that explore issues of sexual violence from various points of view – from the personal to the institutional.

In this interview, you will find out in which debates you may be interested, including the difference between a victim and a survivor, and how feminism can function as a form of therapy.
