How can we take better care of each other and the planet? That question is central to RE/SISTERS, a major exhibition about climate justice and gender equality. Together with a FOMU guide you will look for answers and new visions of the future.
RE/SISTERS: A Lens on Gender and Ecology is an international themed exhibition featuring 50 female and gender non-conforming artists. Through photography, film and installations, these artists show that the exploitation of the planet cannot be viewed separately from the oppression of women and minority groups. They question existing capitalist power structures and look for solutions to restore our fragile ecosystem.
RE/SISTERS is anl exhibition that simultaneously advocates a climate-just and gender-equal future.
RE/SISTERS consists of six thematic chapters: mining - protest and resistance - ecological concern - environmental racism - queerness - new social structures and hierarchies. Together they reframe our thinking about the environment and gender, emphasizing the radical power of caring in the face of exploitation.
