Between 2019 and 2021, the artworks that emerged from the Wom@rts project’s artistic residencies were included in a roaming transmedia exhibition. 32 artists from the fields of lens-based arts, printmaking and illustration&comics had responded to Simone de Beauvoir’s groundbreaking work The Second Sex that was published seventy years ago. The international exhibition of alltogether 32 artists from 8 different partner countries premiered in Maribor, Slovenia and was roaming to the project partner’s exhibition grounds in Vilnius (Lithuania), Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Grand Angoulême (France), Rijeka (Croatia), and Limerick (Ireland). Several hosts added also new exhibitions and other venues due to the high interest in the artistc works.
In their work, the artists related to various media, cultural, and generational experiences, asking themselves about the “nature” of the woman, her social embeddedness, about their own history and their future steps.
