Projects & Collaborations 2017 - ongoing Field/s A forum of twelve artists, curators and photographers from different parts of the world. Aims to promote transnational, cross-generational and interdisciplinary discussion between professionals in the arts. The forum started as an Artquest-funded project in 2017 and has been hosted at Photographers’ Gallery and Gasworks Gallery in London.
2016 – ongoing Feminist Practice in Dialogue A working-group of twelve artists who meet regularly to discuss and examine structures and strategies for female artists’ art and practice. The group focuses on feminist art practice as an ongoing work-in-progress where inquiry requires continuous self-reflection and critical analysis.
2016 – ongoing A Room of Our Own A series of feminist gatherings that take place in a private setting. The idea is to create a space for ongoing feminist discussions. This includes socializing and communicating openly, sharing ideas, reflecting on questions and discussing creativity – touching on every situation that everyday life involves.
2015 – 2017 The Well and How to Climb Out of it (The World Turned Upside-down) A working group of London-based artists, poets and writers who met regularly to discuss our practice in the context of contemporary culture.
