Event Description:
Chang-Jin Lee's public art project Comfort Women Wanted brings to light the memory of 200,000 young women, known euphemistically as comfort women who were systematically exploited as sex slaves in Asia during World War II. This exhibition draws on Lee's revelatory interviews with surviving comfort women from Korea, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Netherlands and the Philippines. Featuring seven prints and video by Chang-Jin Lee, Comfort Women Wanted attempts to create a constructive dialogue for the future. It recognizes the place of comfort women in world history and increases public awareness of the general subject of sexual violence against women during wartime.

Free & open to the public.
