How do we see women? And what role does gender play in the entertainment business years after the first #MeToo-scandal saw the light?

Italian Franziska Gilli (b. 1987) looks at these themes revolving around identity and human ways of interaction with a curious eye. With her project Bambola (which is Italian for ‘doll’), she explores the way we see women by going behind the scenes of the production of several large TV-shows in Italy. Even years after #MeToo, women in the Italian entertainment business are still mainly reduced to the role of a showgirl.

By showing us the set-up and not just the finished media product, Franziska Gilli questions the way we represent gender in the media, who defines this and what it says about our society.
