Thursdays with the Collection Iaia Filiberti & Debora Hirsch // EVENT CANCELLED
12.03.2020 at 11 am – 7 pm
Please note that with effect from 11 March 2020 1 pm MOCAK the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow will be closed due to the epidemic of Coronavirus (COVID-19) until further notice, in accordance with the decision of Polish Government. This applies also to: MOCAK Library, MOCAK Bookstore, and MOCAK Archive. No scheduled events will take place.
In March and April, as part of the new edition of our project Thursday with the Collection, we present the work Framed 2 by Iaia Filiberti and Deobora Hirsch. It consists of cinematic quotations and references to important events in the biographies of more than 20 actresses that appeared in films a few decades ago. The collage is based on the thesis – backed up by solid evidence – that women’s careers are shorter than men’s, and to a large extent dependent on their age and family situation. Moreover, they take professional failure a harder way than men do. The principal aim of the video is to draw attention to the cultural and social conditioning that – notwithstanding the professed gender equality – often give women less opportunity.
This edition of Thursday with the Collection takes the opportunity of the International Women’s Day to propose a deeper reflection on the situation of women in Poland and in the world.
Iaia Filiberti & Debora Hirsch – video, installation. They make their videos with found footage, juxtaposing fragments of films, or documents with text. They use images of figures from the world of culture and politics. They often raise feminist themes and the dominant role of men in society.
The screenings take place throughout the day during the Museum’s opening hours: 11 am – 7 pm. Admission to the MOCAK Collection exhibitions is free of charge on Thursday.
