November 10th, 2011 – November 11th, 2011
– Feminist Perspectives on Critical Cultural Practices –

Seminar/ Center for Women Studies/ Zagreb

The seminar deals with the meaning and dynamics of feminist art and theory in various contexts, as determined by cultural geopolitics; it will also analyse the complex relations of feminist art influences on the art world in general. In what way has the feminist movement contributed to the process of institutional hybridisation? Which forms of innovative institutional practices have been directly influenced by feminism? What is the place of feminist art within critical art practices? – these are some of the questions that the seminar aims to consider.
At a time when we need all available resources to grasp the complexity of social processes that surround us, we need to strengthen responsibilities within the cultural field. The re-actualisations of the feminist paradigm can be an important asset to this process, and an indicator of many contradictions and of unexplored political potential.

The seminar is a collaboration between WHW and the Center for Woman Studies, Zagreb

The working language will be English.
