I'm Walking Behind You and Watching You
I’m Walking Behind You and Watching You is a female map of the city in which memory holders form the missing and ignored stories of women who worked their way through this city, created it, swore by it and breathed it, as well as those who migrated to it every day. If the Slovenian capital has as many as 360 monuments of local significance, what is the number of annotations mentioning women?

Women's Remembrance Street at Cmakajne festival
On September 20th at 17.00, you are invited to Cmakajne festival (at CMAK, Cerkno), to the public viewing of two short videos-in-progress by artist Ana Čigon. “Odkritje mačke v žaklju” (2014) and “Ljubljana, mesto žensk” (2013) address the (absence of) memorials, dedicated to women in Ljubljana. The first video was made as part of her same-titled project, the second was made in collaboration with artists Leja Jurušić, Teja Reba and Barbara Kapelj Osredkar as part of their joint project “I'm Walking Behind You and Watching You”, which premiered at last year’s City of Women festival.
Which women who shaped our history are still remembered? Who has been forgotten? Why is the visibility of women in public space a feminist issue that concerns women and men of all generations? These are some of the questions that are going to be discussed after the screening, led by sociologist, writer and former Red Dawns festival co-organiser Tea Hvala.
The event will conclude with a walk, where the participants will count the number of streets in Cerkno, which are named after women. In case of rain, the walk is going to be replaced by a feature film screening.
No entrance fee. Open to all. In Slovene.
