Powerful showcase to highlight wartime sexual violence in Kosovo

This is the powerful and imaginative art installation held to highlight wartime sexual violence in Kosovo.

More than 5,000 dresses and skirts – including ones donated by Cherie Blair and Rita Ora – were pegged to washing lines in Pristina football stadium.

There are no figures for the number of women and girls raped or subjected to sexual violence during Kosovo’s 1998-99 war, but NGOs claim it could be in the thousands.

The showcase, called “Thinking of You”, was put on by Kosovo-born but London-based Alketa Xhafa-Mripa.
