The international conference Not Yet Written Stories.
Women Artists in CEE
A two-day online event
*2–3 September 2021*, both days from 9 am onward
We would like to invite you to take part in the conference /Not Yet
Written Stories. Women Artists in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)/,
which will be held on 2–3 September as an online event. To follow the
conference on the Zoom platform please register here:
The purpose of the conference is to shed light on the regional context
and to encourage a rethinking of the processes of historiography in
addressing gender in the social, political, cultural and artistic
contexts in Central and Eastern Europe. Women artists in these
environments were often culturally and economically outside the
mainstream of the art world and were threatened by double exclusion
conditioned by both geopolitical and sexual marginalization. The
conference will present a wide context of the roles of women in the arts
and culture with papers reflecting the topics in twelve countries, from
Latvia to Bulgaria and from Ukraine to Croatia.
Among the 73 proposals for the international conference, 24 papers were
selected, including three from Slovenia. *Miha Colner* will talk about
the issue of exclusion in the case of women artists Dragica Čadež and
Duba Sambolec. *Tia Čiček* will present the role of women artists and
curators in the work of the ŠKUC Gallery in Ljubljana in the 1980s.
*Urška Savič* will discuss the issue of archives, memory and oblivion in
the case of performance and video women artists in Slovenia. The
selected conference papers will also be published in the magazine
/Miejsce/, published by the Academy for Fine Arts in Warsaw.
The two-day conference will comprise seven panels devoted to issues such
as the work of women artists in the field of both new media and
textiles, for example; women’s artistic education; socially and
politically engaged art, and many others.
The conference will be inaugurated by a lecture by Professor *Leonida
Kovač* entitled /Subversion of the normative heterosexuality in the
self-representational works of Nasta Rojc/.
The accompanying events will include the screening of *Sonja Savić*’s
films and a performance by *Ana Čigon* entitled /Dear Ladies, Thank you/
Official language of the conference is English.
