We see topless young women who pose with a determined, strong attitude next to paintings, photographs and statues of men in public spaces. They stare directly into the camera, challenging the besuited, middle-aged, male image of power with which they grew up with. These women are here to stay. DEMONCRAZY is a series of oversized photographs exhibited in the heart of the city.
