‘UN-GENDERING VIOLENCE: a personal processing of surviving violence from a nonbinary and social justice perspective’ is a zine created by Mercy Thokozane Minah which combines visual art and possibility models for strategizing safety within communities. The zine maps out the emotional process of coming to terms with surviving violence, using visual art to convey feelings that can be difficult for victims to articulate and text graphics to explore concepts of justice, healing and restoration.
Here are some snapshots of Mercy’s piece.
