How can one's story be told through images? 

"The portrait of Claude Cahun dated 1927 was the starting point of our reflection on self-staging in the era of social networks. 

Her commitments and work, through which she thwarted stereotypes nearly 100 years ago, resonate with current topics in our society, such as the recognition of non-binary identities or the critique of gendered codes. 

Hybrid body? Androgyny? Freedom to be oneself! By exploring the image wall of the digital platform ERSILIA, we have woven connections between different eras and types: from Botticelli's Venus to Arnold Schwarzenegger's portrait, through the politically charged photographs of Zanele Muholi, we imagined a story that Claude Cahun could have shared on Instagram, #iamclaudecahun".
