Girl Fact

As a sort of scenic reading and with performative language power (“You will …!”) Lagadec highlights in his „teenage guide to surviving sex slavery“ positive action alternatives for young women that live in the „stronghold of rape“, Congo. The Credo: Care for your own survival, without regard to others!

Maël G. Lagadec was born 1984 in France. Fotographer, video artist and globetrotter. Currently living in Brussels.
