The YES! Association proudly invites you to Privilege Walk/Symposium – Feminist and intersectional aspects on contemporary art, September 6-7 2008 Lilith Performance Studio, Malmö, Sweden

With the symposium Privilege Walk we want to create space for a deepened discussion about feminist and intersectional aspects on contemporary art, the notion of quality, representation and art production as a politicized situation. The purpose of the symposium is to learn how power is maintained through interacting power structures and examine efficient ways of dismantling those power structures.

We have chosen the title Privilege Walk to indicate that we want to problematize and criticize our own privileges. We wish to discuss, examine and re-articulate concepts such as sisterhood, patriarchy and solidarity. Our aim with the symposium is to point out a future direction.

Lectures and workshops by:
Kuratorisk Aktion, Paula Mulinari, Angela Dimitrakaki, Vanja Hermele, Jeuno JE Kim, Victoria Kawesa, Malin Arnell, Mujeres Publicas, Ellen Nyman, Athena Farrokhzad.

The symposium is free of charge. The lectures, performance, film screening and film program is open to the public, no registration is needed.

The number of participants in the workshops is limited, therefore we ask you to register beforehand. Send an email to info@foreningenja.org with “Registration: workshop” as subject. Indicate first-, second- and third choice and your name and phone number. If you have registered participation in a workshop and are prevented from coming, please let us know so somebody else can take your place.
