WOMXN -The pop up exhibition of the Afrovibes Festival

3 oktober - 28 oktober

What is WOMXN?
Womxn is a spelling of "women" that is a more inclusive, progressive term that not only sheds light on the prejudice, discrimination, and institutional barriers womxn have faced, but to also show that womxn are not the extension of men (as hinted by the Bible story of Adam and Eve) but their own entities. Womxn is more intersectional as it includes trans-women and women of color. - Urban Dictionary

Why go?
Womxn is a graphic arts and photography pop up, composed of work on the ongoing struggle for recognition and freedom of womxn while also celebrating the lives of womxn who have inspired artists to create new works. The exhibition showcases emerging and new artists from South Africa, The Netherlands, Namibia and the Caribbean who are challenging existing perceptions by creating political and social art in their storytelling on paper and in print.
