MULIER_SACER

On Thursday, Janu­ary 16th, 2014 Jimini Hignett will launch his new pub­lic­a­tion Muli­er Sacer at San Ser­riffe in Ams­ter­dam…

As an inhab­it­ant of this city, which gen­er­ates such a large pro­por­tion of its income through the pros­ti­tu­tion industry, the issue is one I feel com­pelled to tackle with my work, but I struggle to find a way to approach it as an artist­ic pro­ject… so many fem­in­ist con­tro­ver­sies, so many com­plex­it­ies ­ I am wary of the battle­ground. How to make art from some­thing this des­ol­ate, this vul­ner­able?”
 — Jimini Hignett

In Muli­er Sacer Jimini Hignett jux­ta­poses the fra­gile stor­ies and pho­to­graphs of women who have escaped from forced pros­ti­tu­tion in the Neth­er­lands with oth­er pieces of writ­ing – an essay about the uneasy rela­tion­ship between pros­ti­tu­tion and fem­in­ism by Pro­fess­or Mag­gie O’Neill, a selec­tion of blog entries by an ex-pros­ti­tute turned abol­i­tion­ist, an inter­view with a soci­olo­gist who pro­cures sex-work­ers for her han­di­capped cli­ents, and a pro­posed change in Dutch legis­la­tion by a crown pro­sec­utor spe­cial­ising in human traf­fick­ing.”
