Une installation artistique met en évidence le besoin d'autonomie corporelle

Dans le cadre du Forum Génération Égalité à Paris, l'UNFPA s'est associé à Equipop et Dysturb pour souligner l'importance cruciale de la réalisation de l'autonomie corporelle pour tous à travers une installation artistique comprenant quelque 2 000 affiches placées dans la ville. L'œuvre d'art provient du rapport 2021 de l'UNFPA sur l'état de la population mondiale, qui comprend d'autres œuvres d'art originales. Une grande partie de l'art a été inspirée par les finalistes d'un concours de photos qui demandait à des jeunes d'illustrer l'idée de perdre ou de gagner en autonomie corporelle.

Against the backdrop of the Generation Equality Forum in Paris, UNFPA partnered with Equipop and Dysturb to highlight the critical importance of realizing bodily autonomy for all through an art installation including some 2,000 posters placed in high-traffic areas of the city. The artwork comes from UNFPA’s 2021 State of World Population report, which commissioned original artwork. Much of the art was inspired by finalists in a photo competition that asked young people to illustrate the idea of losing or gaining bodily autonomy.
