The right to the city has become an over-used slogan in the past year, one that is incanted by almost everyone who tries to shape the city.

Príbeh 0: Covered eyes of the polis. Politicians, citizens and the politics of exclusion

09 03. 2018 Friday 18:00
dobrovoľné vstupné

We often fall upon the term „men of November", which makes it seem that men are the undoubtable creators of historic events. But it is necessary to seek out women-revolutionaries, despite the fact that many of them stood on podia in front of masses. It’s not an uncommon way of limiting the historical records in public memory. It signalized how power is distributed in society, and how this distribution (amongst other things) forms historiography but also the general view of social events and leads to women and their public activities becoming invisible.
