This year, upon an invitation of the festival organiser, Alter Art, the Museum at Open’er welcomed divas, evil fairies and troublemakers: hoolifemmes that dance alone and dance for themselves.
The female body is always at work: both professionally and in private. It constantly renders different services of “intimacy” – from entertainment to care. What happens when a woman refuses to work for others? The exhibition created by the Museum of Modern Art for the Open’er festival concentrates on the forms of women’s rebellion expressed through dance and performance. It explores the riotous character of work and life stances of female visual artists and performers for whom the body becomes a space on which to project different visions of desire, freedom and disobedience.
