faceless - women in prostitution

An exhibition by the Amalie Counselling Centre in cooperation with the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museums

The exhibition is dedicated to a socially taboo topic: women in prostitution. They are confronted daily with hiding their true identity. In society, they hide their faces, dreaming "facelessly" of another life. The exhibition is based on the testimonies of women who work in prostitution. They are often women who left their home countries to escape the lack of prospects there and start a new life under better conditions in Germany. But the reality is different. Photographer Hyp Yerlikaya accompanied the women with his camera for over two years together with the Amalie Counselling Centre. In his mise-en-scène images, he captures people, situations and places
