The Space We Hold

Witness the stories of “the Grandmothers”—women who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese army during World War II.

The interactive web documentary The Space We Hold is a direct provocation to audiences to bear witness to the testimonies of three former “comfort women” who were among the 200,000 girls and young women kidnapped and forced into military sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. The experience guides the user from a solitary act of witnessing to become part of a collective, networked response to the grandmothers. The Space We Hold provides a unique window into the challenges of reconciliation and what it means to bear witness to testimonies of sexual violence in a digital age.
