Germaine Dulac was the first feminist filmmaker (that we know of) and a key figure in the French avantgarde scene of the 1920s.
Marcelle Thirache began with the practice of photography, and later developed a peculiar skill consisting of hand painting directly on a Super 8 filmstrip.
Klara Liden forms are in relation to built environments, often mimicking existing structures in order to evade their policing function.
Maja Borg has been exploring, for a decade, the semantics of visual language, experimenting with form in order to push content beyond the limits of established thought.
Marie Losier, filmmaker and a former film curator, has made a number of film portraits on avantgarde directors, musicians and composers.
Organisation: City of Women.
In cooperation with KUD Mreža/Alkatraz Gallery.
