VUB Crosstalks: BETWEEN GLITTER AND COMPOST
BETWEEN GLITTER AND COMPOST
In May 2021 Kaaitheater invited philosopher Suzana Milevska for an online lecture on ecofeminist art practices. On October 14 she will resume this talk live in Brussels and will be joined by researcher and ecofeminist activist Myriam Bahaffou.
Patriarchal systems in different world cultures have long interpreted women as obsessed with cleansing and purification, this parallel to the anthropologically driven representation of women as ‘dirty’. How can ecofeminism create environmental awareness while also deconstructing the stereotypical and patriarchal hierarchical assumptions of women’s creativity and productivity?
In her lecture, Suzana Milevska will discuss various art practices of ecofeminist artists who revoke the existing systemic hierarchies and models of knowledge production. Myriam Bahaffou will formulate a response to Milevska’s views, by answering them in the prism of her own thoughts. The idea is to create a fruitful ecofeminist dialogue between two researchers who value the place of the dirty, the mixture and the hybrid.
The event is organized in the frame of the European Network, ACT and is a collaboration between Kaaitheater and VUB Crosstalks.
Tickets: €4, €7 (suggested price) or €10. It is up to you to decide which ticket price fits into your current financial situation.
