Description

Through a number of new commissioned artworks in the windows, courtyard, and flagpoles of Stoa Cultural Centre, curatorial collective Feminist Culture House and their collaborators explore different ways to communicate and encounter intersectional feminism.

The flagpoles in Stoa’s courtyard exhibit a rotating group of artworks which represent the artists’ understandings of intersectional feminism. Nearby, a stage backdrop features an artwork by Jade Lönnqvist—an image their younger self would have wished to see in a public place.

Online discussions

Five discussions on collectivity and intersectional feminism will be streamed live on the YouTube channel of Feminist Culture House. Visual notes of the discussions by the artists can also be viewed on the FCH website. Live streams at:
