Contemporary Art and Feminism is a multi-faceted project calling on artists, activists, writers, students and thinkers with a passion for art and feminism. Through real and virtual activism, the project aims to reclaim historically overlooked feminist artists and work toward a more vibrant, egalitarian future. CAF web facilitates this collaboration and communication.

 

Future Feminist Archive (FFA) is an ongoing archival research project, addressing strategies of recovering lost information and promoting the legacies of local feminist art activists (active from 1975 to now) in order to build a solid platform for the future.

It will connect and explore researchers and artists working with care in a number of ways; Care as Relational, Care as Political Labour, Care as Moral Theory, Caring for earth/Country, Art practice as care – Care as Art Practice.
