What do abortions look like? What kind of images shape our view on them? And where do these images come from? The desktop essay “getty abortions” examines how German and Austrian media illustrate the topic of abortion, browsing through stock photos, teen magazines and documents of a real abortion experience. It jumps from the early 2000s to the late 19th century, seeks out feminist knowledge and chats with fictional characters. But one question remains: Why does no one look into the camera?

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
