“Articulo 6: Narratives of gender, strength and politics” is a design and activism project that informs and raises awareness on the case of forced sterilizations implemented in Peru between 1996-2000.The name of the project refers to the Sixth Article in the General Health Law of Peru, which establishes that “all persons have the right to choose freely the contraceptive method they prefer, and to receive appropriate information on the methods available and the risks”.

The project explores different narratives related to this case of forced sterilizations and uses the testimonies of people affected by the policy, political speeches, research documents and laws, as well as other content as raw materials for the project’s garment collection and “actions” . The 12 actions of the project are developed through installations, meta-garments, performances, workshops, videos and photography.
