Women Commentators

The catalogue summarises and expands upon the issues raised during the exhibition 'Women Commentators'. It contains the commentary, critical texts and analyses written by the artists, organizers and experts: Joanna Piotrowska, Antoni Michnik, Leonida Kovač, Marina Naprushkina, Gabriela Golder, Jane Jin Kaisen, Monika Popow, Anna Walewska, Katarzyna Kozyra and Nicole Hewitt.

The exhibition opened in 2013 in the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in autumn. The curators of the event —  Leonida Kovač and Anna Walewska — point out that the project is dedicated to the art of contemporary female artists of the young generation, who tackle political, social, and artistic issues in their art. 

The exhibition argued that commentary, one of the oldest from of expression, is not solely a man’s domain. Therefore, the project constituted an important field of reflection upon existence of gender in the media and social studies, where women’s voice is often unheard or deals with matters considered as side issues which lack the audience.
