From the organizer
“One autumn night, when he was sick, and I attempted to make some porridge.”
“I insisted, but he did not kiss me.”
“I didn’t tell her that I was a virgin.”
“We were chanting together, and a question burnt in my mind: Would you sleep with me?” “When my grandmother was going to the mountain for a holiday, I jumped out of the taxi and grabbed his arm: ‘You have to go home with me, otherwise I am gonna be a virgin forever!’”
“The first time” is a collection of memories from a mixed group of 18 to 98 years old worldwide, sharing how they lost their purity. It combines photographs, texts, and objects.
