READING PUBLIC SCULPTURE FROM FEMINIST PERSPECTIVE
workshop led by Ivana Hanaček and Ana Kutleša
17 November 2016, 6.00 p.m.
BEURSSCHOUWBURG (Bruxelles, Belgium)
"This lecture and workshop by [BLOK] is part of a programme put together by Hana Miletic as part of her exhibition "Materials". The curatorial collective will present their local research project on female presence in the monumental sculpture of Zagreb, Croatia, Reading Public Sculpture from a Feminist Perspective. This research operated on two levels: [BLOK] tackled the question of female representation, as well as the issue of women artists as authors of public sculpture, considering both gender and class. After presenting their conclusions, and new questions which emerged from the process, [BLOK] will broaden the argument to the public space of Brussels, analyzing politics of creating public memory in order to detect the material base which generates patriarchal patterns."
