With the rise of social media as a platform for self-expression and the growing infringements placed on women’s bodies through social and political policies, how is the domestic sphere changing for women?
For Zofia Rydet, who undertook an enormous feat of photographing all the households in Poland in the latter half of the twentieth century, the family portrait in the interior, private space of the home became the motif of domesticity.
Over 20 years since Rydet’s passing, how do we distinguish between the private and the domestic sphere? How have online platforms become a collective space of resistance for migrants, subversive ageing bodies, and queer sexualities and genders? The subject of domesticity continues to intrigue a new generation of women artists. We invite Anna Jochymek, Maja Ngom and Paola Ciarska to give us a fresh take on what the domestic space means to them.
Moving image works will be on display throughout the evening by Agata Zbylut, Natalia Dołgowska & Michalina Musielak and Zofia Krawiec.
The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception with dj set by DJ Stav B.
The evening is curated by Maggie Kuzan.
