"Unearthed: Stories of Courage in the Face of Sexual Violence" was opened in New Delhi, India, on 16 December, 2015 and was on display for one week. The exhibition's aim is to raise awareness of the need to change the culture around sexual violence in India. The design of this exhibition tested a conceptual theoretical model by the author that combines critical hermeneutic inquiry with social semiotic, multimodal analysis. This CHaSSMM Model aims to improve the studio practice of designers who work on exhibitions that revolve around "difficult knowledge" topics: critical hermeneutics can help us to understand the aims of the stakeholders and the underlying ideologies that create the necessity for the project. Social semiotic, multimodal analysis can help designers create more systematic inventories of the semiotic resources used to perform those ideologies in the world, as well as being a tool for reflexive design practice.
