Sacred profanity

This assignment was based on an essay we had to write in theory class.

Mine was focusing on the menstruation as a taboo, more specifically on the role of art in turning it from something intangible into something profane since it’s a part of everyday lives of half the population and indirectly the other half as well.

I got inspired by the fly curtains, since especially in the Mediterranean, almost every household has one.

I made it out of tampons and hanged it on several doors to see the reaction of people.


Is it still a taboo if everyone can see it, talk about it?
