17. Anniversary of Feminine Moments

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

November is the anniversary month of Feminine Moment (2003-2020). It began in the early 2000's with a dream... I created a basic website with a bibliography and a long list of links, linking websites by queer feminist artists. Then Wordpress happened and I shifted planform and began sharing press releases, artist statements, photos of artworks, etc. And with the blog came a new dream about sharing videos with queer feminist artists, talking about their art projects, by videomakers around the world. Youtube had been launched by then, making the dream possible and the rest is history.
