Vernissage : Itinéraires entrecoupés - Les visages de l'aide sociale

They are 19, 36, 51, 63 years old... Each has their own story: a layoff, a medical accident, a divorce, a rough childhood.

At some point, each of them asked for help from the welfare system. Popular belief paints them as mere idlers and profiteers. But what do we truly know about it? Who are these people and what happened to them? As a matter of fact, such mishaps can happen to any of us very quickly: nobody is safe from losing everything anymore, even in Switzerland.
Together with this exhibition, the "Ateliers du sensible» and the students from the School of Social Work Geneva / Haute école de travail social de Genève will present short films made during an introductory module to the filmed portrait, each depicting a beneficiary of a social institution.
