Exhibition "Wonder Girls" from October 23 to November 8 at TUM

Girls who change the world

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is presenting the exhibition "Wonder Girls: Changing Our World" in its main building at Arcisstraße 21 in Munich.

The exhibition is based on the book of the same name, for which the photographer Paola Gianturco and her granddaughter Alex Sangster interviewed over 90 girls between the ages of 10 and 18 and documented her work photographically. Under often difficult conditions, these girls and young women work for equality, education, environmental protection, peace and human rights. They take to the streets together, write petitions, produce radio broadcasts and try to achieve their goals through social networks and local actions.

Three protagonists of the book will be present at the opening on October 23 at 6 p.m.: Sandy Alqas Botros from Hamburg, Memory Banda from Malawi and Vanessa Bosse from Bavaria. TUM organizes the exhibition together with the Bavarian State Chancellery, the Stiftung Wertebündnis Bayern and Elisabeth Sandmann Verlag, who published the book.
