The left image above is a painting based on a photo of the 23 year old Feng Jianmei from China. Because she could not afford the 5300.- € penalty fee for having a second child, she was forced to have an abortion. The photo was taken after the surgical intervention. The setup is very similar to the painting "Olympia" by Edouard Manet. Manets painting shows a self confident prostitute who seems to be posing deliberately.

To show oneself in a situation this intimate and devastating is the new prostitution of our time. To make a case public an emotional image is a premise.
