Exhibitions are a tool, not the result. Art should open up for a democratic dialog and rethink the ‘ordinary’ exhibition practises. Martha Rosler: “art make difference to a social movement only when it is made in cognizance of those movements.” . Exhibition making can be a model of resistance, a tool and not the result.
On March 10th we were invited to present sculptureHUB part of the International Women’s day celebration at a-venue! An explosion of cultural expressions. During four days they presented a wide program of concerts, speeches, performances, video art, textile & jewelry works, pussy print and girl magazine workshops, installations, lectures, zines and more!
The feminist strategies festival was arranged by A-venue and Konstkåren HDK section at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts.
