CEED Feminisms Bibliography Launch

Embracing wom+n-led practices and organising before and under state socialisms, as well as academic and non-academic feminisms from the ‘region’ emerging before and after independence, the CEED Feminisms Bibliography sketches a constellation of urgent and ongoing feminist and decolonial conversations that decentre Western feminism. Mapping CEED Feminisms for English readers, it distils conversations and references offered by the CEED Feminisms Working Group, comprising over 40 practitioners based in and beyond the UK, from May 2023-4.

Free copies of the printed bibliography will be distributed, and we will read Ukrainian curator and scholar Asia Tsisar’s essay ‘The Role You Made Me Play: About Unobvious Difficulties of Studying Eastern European Art’ (2022), out loud, together, one person and one paragraph at a time. Tsisar’s thought provoking essay, a bibliography entry, opens a conversation about the stakes of representing ‘Central Eastern European’ art and feminist practice that we will continue informally with drinks.

The bibliography is a collective research compiled by Bogana Ababii, Holly Antrum, Laura Bivolaru, Diana Damian, Lina Džuverović, Sabrina Fuller, Vanessa Giorgio, Markéta Hašková, Jessie Krish, Marta Marsicka, Adomas Narkevičius, Maja A. Ngom, Helena Reckitt, Marta Zboralska, and others who wish to remain uncredited.

CEED Feminisms is a Research Group of the British Art Network (BAN). BAN is a Subject Specialist Network supported by Tate and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, with additional public funding provided by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
