Future Feminism Aarhus ECoC 2017

11.08.2017 |

The subject of feminism seems more firmly on the radar today than it’s ever been. So, who better is there to bring it to Aarhus 2017 than three feminist female artists, in FUTURE FEMINISM, an exhibition coordinated by this year’s artist-in-residence Anohni.

The exhibition FUTURE FEMINISM has stormed popular culture since its launch in 2014. The exhibition at its foundation is 13 works by Anohni’s New York based collaborators Kembra Pfahler and Johanna Constantine, proclaiming the “13 Tenets of Future Feminism". Timing is everything and the manifestation of the tenets into the mainstream consciousness has made the exhibition iconic. Even Hilary Clinton has proclaimed one if its tenets, “The Future is Female” recently.  

To engage the feminine perspective in Aarhus 2017’s programme as the European Capital of Culture, FUTURE FEMINISM will feature a strong presence by the artists, with talks and workshops as well as performances and various other events spread over more than 3 weeks.   

Highlights include an afternoon panel session “Future Feminism requires the participation of all people” at 4pm on the 15th of August. Johanna Constantine will present “Rising from the Ashes” from 8 to 9pm on August 18th and  Kembra Pfahler will present a workshop series, the 4th of which is “Performance Art 101: The Manual of Action” from 3 to 5 pm on August 19th.

All events (except the workshop which is donation based) are free and presented in English. Future Feminism will be held from Friday 11th August to Sunday 3rd September 2017 at ‘O’ Space in Aarhus, Denmark. The programme is available here on the Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 website. The exhibition is presented by Aarhus 2017 in collaboration with Aarhus festival.
