On Friday June 12th 2015, the photo exhibition Women of the World: Home and Work in Barcelona was inaugurated at the beautiful Sant Rafael Pavilion of the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site. The exhibition features photographs and stories of sixteen immigrant women living and working in Barcelona. Led by UNU-GCM Director, Parvati Nair, with oral interviews and photography by UNU-GCM researcher Tatiana Diniz, the project combines oral history with documentary photography. By focusing on a range of immigrant women of diverse ethnicities, ages, social classes, educational levels, occupations and professional backgrounds, Women of the World explores the overlaps and contrasts between home, work and the city for first generation female immigrants. The exhibition is on until August 31st 2015 (check here for visiting hours). An audiovisual gallery and further details on the project are available here.
