The rise of populism in Europe – video

The Rise of Populism in Europe – Wendy Marijnissen from FOTODOK on Vimeo.

 

Here is a little teaser of some of my work that will become part of ‘The Rise of Populism in Europe’ project. Together with photographers like Jan-Joseph Stok, Dirk-Jan Visser, Andrea Gjestvang and Ed Thompson, we’ll explore these various development in our own countries.

In Belgium, I’ll be focussing on the lives of Muslim women and how their headscarf has become such a contested symbol and we ended up with a burqa banning law. Us/Them … instead of we.
