the fridge & Xaspel, 8 Madrid Blvd.

Nadezda Plungyan lives and works in Moscow. She was a founding member of the Moscow Feminist Group and a senior fellow at the State Institute of Art History, Moscow. One of her last projects was the exhibition "Feminist pencil" 2012. "We often blame women artists to be too wordy, chamber, or to use very personal tone. But it is these exact qualities that make graphic reports historical documents. That is what concerns us as organizers the project: a combination of personal insight, particular interest in graphic culture and active civil position. It is exactly the consideration of the personal as political what characterizes our optics as a feminist," says Plungyan about this project. She will speak about current feminist visual culture in Russia and the social mechanisms applied in the art world, which create conditions of exclusion of particular individuals and communities.
