Rendezvous with ECOFEMINISM
December 10th, 6 p.m.
Library of Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole (ul. Kośnego 32a)
For the last time this year, we would like to invite you to rendezvous with ecofeminism. This time we will mentally meet with Bruna Bianchi and her text Ecofeminist Thought and Practice. Her thoughts and ideas will be introduced by Magdalena Worłowska – curator, art historian, ecologist – whom we will meet personally;)
Bruna Bianchi comes up with many interesting thesis based on surveys of the most influential ecofeminist scholars. The text tells the story of the emergence of ecofeminism and considers the most important questions related to this philosophical current:
“Just what makes the environment (ecology) a feminist issue? What are some of the alleged connections between the domination of woman and the domination of nature? How and why is recognition of these connections important to feminism, environmentalism, and environmental philosophy? Answering these questions is largely what ecofeminism is about” (Karen Warren, quoted by Bianchi).
We are looking forward to see you;)
*Texts will be provided on the spot, but feel free to bring your own reading devise.
