female trouble (DE/PL/IL)
Monday 31. October – Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts
Over the course of one week female trouble engage in conversations with various agents of the dance & performance and queer art communities in Copenhagen, as well as WAW festival’s invited artists. The goal is to meet, to get to know, to learn from, to be inspired by, to motivate to, to argue on, to disagree with, to network, to continue figuring out the building of temporary, fragile communities. The encounters are taking effect through the lens of working with friends/friends at work. How do we become friends with artists we don’t know, and what’s the point of doing so? How can we take friendship as a working frame and mode? The content of the encounters will be shared in the Symposium “Group works? Feminism and friendship in neoliberalism”.
female trouble are a friendship based collective (Roni Katz, Agata Siniarska, Xenia Taniko Dwertmann) working in Berlin since 2013. We share a mutual process of artistic, intellectual, personal and political exchange revolving around art(istic) work(s), bodies, femininities and feminisms. female trouble initiated the public platform VULVA CLUB with the objective of bolstering and activating a community. VULVA CLUB is a regular event series, an attempt towards peripheral visibility. With VULVA CLUB female trouble invite guests and fellows to choreograph the encounters of art/works, people, communities and conversations – all through mutual affection in real time. On other occasions we perform our practice of circulating scores that accumulates and reformulates three bodies reading, writing and dancing with one another.
