We cordially invite you to the feminist fight club workshop by our resident Đejmi Hadrović which will take place in Šopa Gallery on the 13th of July between 16.00 – 20.00.
The workshop’s objective is to present the feminist artists and support emerging feminists who investigate and transgress conventional gender roles and sexual identities. Besides that, it aims to create a safe space for women to allow them to open up and share their own stories.
In our contemporary moment, as feminist and queer activists are experiencing growing levels of threats as well as unprecedented amounts of visibility worldwide, art proves useful as a means of activist communication and organization. Faced with the resurgence of misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, aggressive fascistic nationalisms, and enforcement of oppressively exclusive variants of normative gender roles, progressive attitudes appear increasingly valuable. It is crucial to practice, further, support, and strengthen the multifold forms of feminist resistance and resilience.
Đejmi Hadrović is a media artist working in photography, video, installation art and performance art. She studied philosophy, culture and anthropology and further continued her master’s studies focusing on Time-based media at the University of Art and Industrial Design in Austria. In 2017 she became a PhD scholar at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
The residency is organized as a part of the HYDRA PACE – Platform for Artistic Collaboration and Exchange project. Anna Lindh Foundation and the European Union are the main partners of the project. The residency program of KAIR Košice Artist Residence is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council.
