Feminine Moments' newsletter - Queer Abstractions

March 2021, issue #112. Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

The theme of the March 2022 newsletter is 'queer abstractions'. I have selected this theme because I find the first two zoom conversations which I share below very interesting. I invite you to listen to the artists and the art experts. Enjoy!
