The lecture is part of the public programme in frame of the exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video.

Artist and curator Ana Grobler, MA who has been researching feminist art in Slovenia for more than a decade is going to present the key art works with feminist content that have been created in the area since the mid-1970s. She is going to focus on art works that use the medium of video and are connected to the exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video in Alkatraz Gallery. Her lecture is also going to touch upon the social context in which this engaged art form is being developed in – and continues to be inseparably connected to.

Both lecture and guided tour will be in Slovenian language.
