THE WEAVE SALON 2015-17
Staged monthly from April 2015 at the Daily Rhythms studio in the Glacistrasse, the Weave was a cultural salon to explore women’s issues and different strands of feminisms from theoretical and practical perspectives, while also providing opportunities for women from the cultural and art scene and all backgrounds to network in a relaxed and friendly environment. A small feminist library has been established for attendees and members. Weave salon events incorporated relevant talks by experts and academics, performances by musicians and performance artists, pertinent exhibitions, workshops and presentations.
Themes for events over the year 2015/2016 have included:
online harassment; women and migration; cis and transgender feminisms; body image;
age and sexuality; diverse masculinities; reclaiming public space,
feminist perspectives on visual art with a focus on Graz-based artists…
Among the guest speakers, performers and artists were:
Sol Haring, Daniela Jauk, Margarethe Maierhofer-Lischka, Senta Bremstein, RESANITA, Katja Cruz, Eva Ursprung, Irina Karamarkovic, Reni Hofmüller, Huda Takriti, Sazgah Salih, Veza Fernandez, Elif Yalcinkaya, Caroline List, Tatjana Petrovic, Gudrun Jöller, Eva Taxacher, Elena Muti, Eva Wagner, Stefanie Egger, and many others.
