For a free place
Far away from manorial derision
Yearned our sisters
You’re the battle’s wages
In 2013, the thematic focus of the annual program is firmly intended for the many supporters and the extended family, without whom the undertakings of the VBKÖ would not be possible: the planned projects, exhibitions, workshops, lectures and interventions in public space as well as the performance programs discuss and examine the theme of Friendship, Do-It-Together, Sense of Community and Care Taking.
Through this thematic emphasis on women’s networks and commoning, the VBKÖ will again focus on feminist practices as a starting point for alternative and new artistic and social everyday practices. The mutual support, commons and a sense of community have been elementary for the contemporary feminism practiced and exemplified in art and culture by the VBKÖ for over a century.
