The Body as a Battlefield
Cristina de Middel's Nobel Peace Prize work goes on show for a year
This year’s Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition focuses on Dr Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad, exploring how sexual violence has been, and still is, used as a weapon of war worldwide.
“The violence itself is in many cases so overwhelming that it’s hard to convey sufficiently through the documentary genre,” explains Cristina de Middel, who is this year’s official photographer for the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead, she portrays the topic of sexual violence in conflict and war in a series of staged photographs taken in Nigeria in 2018 using local volunteers.
