Urbanfeminism members invite visitors to discuss the social potential of artistic interventions and activism in an urban environment, as well as personal neuroses, problems and other obstacles that stand in the way of individual and collective actions.
In recent months, the world has seen two women’s protest marches unprecedented in their scale: the Black Protest against the ban on abortion in Poland and Women’s March on Washington in the USA. Despite the Russian government’s plans to decriminalize domestic violence and exclude abortions from mandatory health insurance, feminist agendas in Russia still get little support.
Artist Ulyana Bychenkova and researcher Aleksandra Talaver will be discussing feminist action with Katrin Nenasheva (Don’t Be Afraid, No PEACE, Punishment), Tatyana Volkova (MediaUdar, Fem Club, Triennial curator), Ilmira Bolotyan (Tsentr Krasny, Triennial curator), Anna Nizhnik (feminist, activist of the Russian Socialist Movement and LeftFem), and Angelina Lucento (lecturer at the Higher School of Economics).
Moderators: Ulyana Bychenkova and Aleksandra Talaver
