Mechitza. Individual and Collective Resistance of Women during the Shoah
18 April 2023, 2 pm
20 April 2023, 5 pm
The spoken-word performance accompanies the solo show by Zuzanna Hertzberg, an interdisciplinary artist, ‘artivist’ and researcher.
The exhibition WOMEN FIGHTERS: AN AFFECTIVE ARCHIVE has been conceived as a visual narrative of the history of Jewish women’s activism in the 20th century. The project contributes to her building a new affective archive of women’s experience. What methods did they use? How did they respond to oppression? And how can we use this knowledge in our struggles today? Galeria Studio presents artworks on fabric, objects and paintings. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of spoken word performances by the artist. By recovering the voice of women, narrating their lives and transferring them to the present day, Hertzberg develops a herstory of Jewish women’s resistance.
The exhibition will be on view Tuesday to Sunday, 12–7 pm until May 21, 2023.
