Programme coordinator at AV-arkki, Tytti Rantanen, has curated a show called “Feminism, gender and real action”. The Finnish and international works in the show highlight the boundaries between feminism and gender, the material and the practical side. The works start from the existing reality but progress towards surrealism and fantasy. Critique is ever present: Snow Whites question age-old plots, and the fairytale prince may turn out to be a cannibal. Before the show and during intermission, the foyer displays Artor Jesus Inkerö’s work Rihanna (2015). After the show, artist Sepideh Rahaa’s lecture performance برزخ / Barzakh / Limbo is performed.
