The pain and perhaps confusion that a girl feels during her first menstrual period is dwarfed by the social forces that kick in as soon as a girl becomes a woman and becomes fertile. The girls in What did I do wrong? refuse to play a passive role in the play of power, honor and control. They refuse the social straitjacket that links their reproductive capacity to behavioral restriction and prudishness. They rise up against normalized violence, the emotionless society and all that is fake, and strike back with the blood that started it all.

Under the title 'Obsessions', BRUTUS presents new work by L.A. Raeven, an exhibition by emerging talent Alexandra Phillips and an installation by Atelier Van Lieshout. The exhibition can be seen from 11 March to 22 May 2022.

BRUTUS is a presentation space for contemporary art. The art on display may cause offense, exceed ethical standards and can cause confusion or give an unsafe feeling. The programming is free from ideological, ethical or aesthetic unambiguity and offers absolute freedom to expressions of art – however deviant it may be.
BRUTUS is currently located in old buildings. The exhibition areas can therefore be dark or wet. So watch out for slippery surfaces and unexpected steps. BRUTUS accepts no liability for (emotional) damage or injury resulting from the above.
