Feminine Moments' newsletter

May 2018

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

It is a busy month for me with holidays and a more than usual amount of packing to be done: I am packing all my belongings and artworks into boxes. From the end of June I'll move to a temporary appartment in the next street, because my home and the all the other houses in my street are to be renovated. My 'exile' will be a 6-7 month long period and then I'll return to my new, old home.

The applications for the 2018-2019 cycle of the Queer Art Mentorship programme in New York is open. The programme nurtures exchange between artists at all levels of their careers and works against a natural segregation between generations and disciplines. It is a year-long exchange between emerging and established artists in five different creative fields: Film, Literature, Performance, Visual Art, and Curatorial Practice.
