Despite thirty years of struggle for public recognition, domestic violence remains a murderous scourge in Switzerland. Between shame, guilt and the difficulty to obtain justice: testimonies show that many taboos remain for both women and men.

Many other institutions, including libraries, have already successfully embarked on the exercise of producing an exhibition on stories.

BITE INTO CHILDHOOD
Galerie Papiers Gras and the Association 30 Ans de Droits de l’Enfant are pleased to invite you to the opening of the collective exhibition “Croquez l’Enfance”, Thursday 17 January 2019 at 6pm.
To open the year of the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the draughtsmen and draughtswomen of French-speaking Switzerland are gathered in a new sales exhibition. In pencil, felt pen, brush or ink, they sketch childhood and invite you into an abundant variation of styles and techniques to look at the child and his or her rights with poetry, tenderness or humour – and always with full consciousness.
