ARIEL – Feminisms in the Aesthetics (DK) & Gina Arizpe (MX)

ARIEL – Feminisms in The Aesthetics is a platform and interface for the development and dissemination of exhibitions of high artistic quality, centered on new ramifications of feminism in the aesthetic field. Through an innovative facilitation of artistic research, the project seeks to expand and nuance the framework of understanding of the field of feminism and to create a contact area where the topics can be accessed. The initiative is Nordic and internationally oriented with a long-term perspective on branching out into new collaborations, contexts and situations. ARIEL is initiated by Nina Wöhlk, and co- run and curated with Karen Vestergaard Andersen and located in Kvindernes Bygning.
