SENSE & SENSIBILITY *** What a girl wants – what a girl needs
September 2017- January 2018 featuring Mandy Roos, Gabriel Ann Maher, Olle Lundin, Janina Frye, Virginie Gauthier, Alicja Melzacka, Charlotte van Buylaere, Roberto Perez, Carly Rose, Daantje Bons, Camille Auer, Nasty Women and others.
It’s because feminism has become a fashionable commodity now, that we’re in desperate need of a more inclusive and varied reflection on contemporary girlhood, cross-cultural feminism, and the relationship between gender, politics and philosophy. Sense and Sensbility wishes to explore oppositions and contradictions, in image and text, in theory and in visual modes of culture here and now. We try to make sense by getting together during changing situations, rather than define a status quo, and we try to be sensible, by embracing diversity within the interpretation of the theme. Each artist will get the space for one month to research, show, tell, intervene, perform, express and implore their relation to female power, contradictions, societal standards and gender. Next to the temporary solo moments, there will be a permanent so-called Girls’ Room: this perfect pink space will contain traces and objects from each participant, as well as zines and posters from others. The Girls Room functions both as a reading room, a workshop, an exhibition hall and as a space where dialogue between the visitor and the project’s participants can take place.
This event happens in Onomatopee
