The 23rd International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women is taking place at the time of remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, the beginning of which is closely connected to the struggle for equality of women in society. Thus, it is marked by the shaking of norms and not conforming to the ideas that are – by conservative and nationalistic ideologies – again being promoted as natural. This year’s festival, with the slogan nation_nature_norm, is therefore opening space to excellent, provocative and socially committed artistic suggestions. The artists will talk about abortion, legally unrecognized and non-normative families, biology and feminism and gender performance tactics. Besides exhibitions and performances, there will also be workshops, discussions and a conference in the programme, whilst socialising will be wrapping up in the evenings with music and unique film screenings, which will make even the younger public think.

Welcome to the City of Women!
