Feminine Moments' 15th Anniversary

November 2018

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

Hurray! I am celebrating the 15th anniversary of Feminine Moments. I launched Feminine Moments as a non-profit art project in November 2003 and created the first version of the resource website soon after. And I have been blogging about queer feminist art for the last decade, sharring pieces of news about queer feminist artists and their art projects. See my anniversary post (below) with my season selfie :-) and a story about my work with Feminine Moments which besides the blogging includes a lot of tinkering with the Feminine Moments website, improving its functions and the presentation of the artists and their works.

In this issues of the Feminine Moments' newsletter I am happy to present performance artists Ann Antidote and Notorische Ruhestörung. They are co-creating a series of experimental performances combining improvised music/noise with bondage in Germany. See their performance video: 'Rope meets Noise' (below).

I am also happy to introduce you to Birmingham based photographer Marta Kochanek. I have shared a short promotional video and a lecture with her on Feminine Moments in which she is talking about her creative practice and her fascination with photography archives.
