Simona Semenič: THE SECOND TIME

October 7, 2018 8:30 pm

The performance the second time that premiered on the 20th International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women in 2014 is a sequel to her first solo; where the first solo ends, the second one begins. Literally. “Let me smoke,” the last line in the performance I, Victim. is the first line in the performance the second time. Simona recounts her recent years during which she has been coping – in one way or the other –with the aggravation of her epilepsy and – what else? – the health system.

The performance is in English.

Tickets: 10 EUR, 7 EUR (students, seniors)

Missing autobiography, poetics of the body, pronominal politics

October 7, 2018
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

It is not easy to find the “right way” to subvert the practices of excluding the “feminist point of view” from philosophy, literature and art. In order to open this narrow door, the festival event this year include autobiography as an integral part of critical theory and new martial arts.

Participants: Laura Hengehold, Polona Mesec, Metka Zupančič, Elena Pečarič, Valerija Vendramin, Eva D. Bahovec

“For most of history, Anonymous was a woman,” wrote Virginia Woolf, and the truthfulness of her words is still confirmed every time we ask someone who the anonymous writer is.

Fierce Women is an inspiring card game for every generation that familiarizes its players with women’s contributions in the fields of culture, politics, science, feminism, human rights and art. It empowers its players to break down prejudices about women’s abilities, interests and achievements, and inspires new generations of fierce women – all of this while providing great fun!
