Podcast 'Moslima'

The podcast 'Moslima' is a personal and urgent quest by image-maker and researcher Cigdem Yuksel. Together with radio and podcast maker Maartje Duin, Cigdem investigates how the image of 'the Muslim woman' has been created over the years and how they can change that image.

This podcast is part of a larger research project. In 2020, Cigdem published a research on the representation of Muslim women in the ANP's image database. Last year she published her second report examining how photos of veiled women are used in news papers. In collaboration with Pakhuis de Zwijger, she organized a change process with three meetings where media makers came together and discussed how to do things differently. An exhibition will take place at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam in 2024.
