FOMU presents RE/SISTERS: A Lens on Gender and Ecology, a major group exhibition surveying the relationship between gender and ecology to identify the systemic links between the oppression of women and the degradation of the planet.

Our planet and its inhabitants are under pressure. Massive pollution, intensive deforestation, and extraction are making once healthy ecosystems increasingly fragile. Hard boundaries divide the world and separate humans from nature. RE/SISTERS illustrates the urgency of the climate crisis and delves deeper. The artists in this exhibition make you feel how the exploitation of the earth is inseparable from the systemic oppression of women and minorities. The exhibition invites reflection on new visions for the future.
