Endo Violence - a mutant uterus, endometriosis hysteria, & the gender health gap. A mixed media exhibition by HYSTERA (Dr Alicja Pawluczuk) at Obenrum Untenrum / Inclusive Gynecology and Sexual Medicine (Helen Sange).


Endo-Violence can be seen in the systematic mistreatment of people by society, research, and, healthcare providers, which can manifest in various forms of discrimination, bias, and abuse (e.g. experiences of pain described as "hysterical", "attention-seeking," or "overly emotional,").

Endo Violence is a set of beliefs and norms, acts or behaviours that are harmful or discriminatory towards an individual or group based on their gender, cultural, social, or ethnic background (e.g., social norms that period pain is normal).

What does Endo-Violence mean to you? How can we collectively work towards a more just world for all endometriosis warriors?

The exhibition aims to co-explore these questions alongside the endometriosis community as part of Endometriosis Awareness Month. We invite endo warriors and their allies, the endometriosis medical community, activists and researchers to co-examine their understanding of what endo violence means to them and what steps we can collectively take to address this topic.


HYSTERA (dr alicja pawluczuk) is a hysterical activist  [website + INSTA @hy_stera].

HYSTERA's artworks are kitschy, vibrant, and most importantly - hysterical. Through hysterical artivism, she aims to raise awareness of the collective and often invisible suffering as a result of centuries of medical misogyny and the existing gender health gap.

HYSTERA’s works also explore her intersecting identities, as a technology researcher, feminist, migrant, disabled activist, and artist, and ground them within a wider socio-technological context.

HYSTERA was born in Poland, educated in Scotland, and is currently based in Berlin, where she is an artist in residence at Artist-in-Residence Program @ Hotel die Fabrik.

Read about HYSTERA’s artivism in KALTBLUT, Konibi Arts, and Curated by Girls.
