The #MeToo movement spread all over the world in 2017. Many people use this hashtag to tell stories on social media, of them having been sexually assaulted in the past. There were incidents like Lui LaiYiu, #ChurchToo and #ProtestToo in Hong Kong. This shows the generality of the problem, regardless of gender, serious underreporting, victim blaming and the general fear of online trials, etc. The campaign aims to break the silence and empower the victims with empathy and strength in numbers. After #MeToo, what else can art do on this topic? The exhibition hopes to continue the spontaneous power of #MeToo and enhance the public's awareness of and attention to related topics, and explore the importance of freedom, justice, empathy and mutual respect.
