ARCHIVING WOMANIFESTO is an exhibition about the feminist collective of artists, writers and activists that began in Thailand in 1995. Starting with the exhibition Tradisexion, this collective went on to organize biennale events that aimed to increase women’s visibility. ARCHIVING WOMANIFESTO shows the significant history of their actions and events. The work of local, regional and transnational artist collectives and curatorial actions feed growing archives, of which the Womanifesto project is an important example. At the closing, practical questions of archival retrieval and currency will be the focus of the discussion. For more information, please visit the Cross Art Projects website.
