Female students dominate the art schools, but the art world continues to be mostly male dominated. In this file you will find information about art and feminism from an intersectional perspective.

The situation that only men hold the important management positions in government functions, with funds and collections, at museums, stages and presentation institutions, at universities and art academies, is over. Unfortunately, that does not mean that gender no longer plays a role, because despite this structural improvement, sexism is so institutionalized that it constitutes a system that still determines our actions and thoughts. Female artists still earn much less than their male colleagues, their work is worth less, they receive fewer grants, exhibitions, presentations, etc. We want to investigate and contribute to finding solutions to the underlying, structural mechanisms of exclusion in the art world.

Also in this file: information on intersectionality, the complex interplay and overlap of axes of identity and projects that highlight these different, intersecting mechanisms of oppression and exclusion, and show how they work together. We strive to always question the binary categories of male and female.
