Welcome to the FemF ART exhibition on the notion of 'movement'!
For the fifth anniversary of Feminist Forum, FemF ART is taking over Valssaamo at Cable Factory for one weekend in October. This multidisciplinary exhibition presents racialised Finnish, Nordic and international artists working with the notion of ‘movement’. The theme can be regarded broadly, not only in the sense of creating a movement, or being part of a movement, but also the physical movement (or restriction) of certain bodies.
FemF ART aims to challenge and disrupt the cultural politics and normativities of Finland’s art scene by organising an event where artists of colour and racialised artists are at the centre of both the exhibition and the process. There will be live performances during the opening and artist talks throughout the day programme, with the main FemF programme taking place at Arbis (Dagmarinkatu 3).
