Privilege Walk/Symposium - INVITATION

The YES! Association and Lilith Performance Studio 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.

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.

Café Banjo will be present and sell lunch, coffee and snacks during the entire weekend.

The official language during the symposium will be English, but nobody needs to be an expert on this language to participate, we will help each other with translations as we go along.

We look forward to an interesting weekend with you!
