Registration until 22.10.22:

Together we want to address the following questions among others:
What can feminist art “achieve”? What kind of (feminist) art do we want and need in the future and especially against the background of the current political and ecological catastrophes? What new formats and alliances are important to develop? What future forms of exhibition making (collaborative / collective) and (art) mediation are necessary for a paradigm shift? What visions do we need without losing sight of the realities and what potential do formats like manifestos have?

Katy Deepwell is Professor of Contemporary Art, Theory and Criticism at Middlesex University, London. She founded and edited: n.paradoxa: international feminist art journal (1998-2017 at KT press). Recent books include Feminist Art Activisms and Artivisms (2020) and 50 Feminist Art Manifestos: An Anthology (2022).

Övül Ö. Durmuşoğlu is a curator, writer and educator working on the sustainability of intersectional futures. She is co-professor of Art in Discourse in HBK Braunschweig with Dr. Ana Teixeira Pinto.

Sarah Held is a cultural scholar and art creator. She teaches and researches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Feminist interventions and forms of resistance against sexualised violence/femicide are the subject of her research and artistic-activist practice. She co-founded the art collective Aufstand der Schwestern.

Lorena Juan works in her curatorial practice with experimental formats, public space and collaborative processes, using heterogeneous tools from speculative fiction and feminist science fiction. She is co-founder of COVEN BERLIN and part of the transmediale curatorial team.

This event is part of the exhibition Phoenix’s Last Song by Dorine van Meel and takes place as a cooperation project and as part of the transnational exhibition Empowerment (10.9.22-8.1.23) by and at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.
