discussion /


16.6. 7 pm
tranzitdisplay
Dittrichova 9, Prague

quests: Ytasha L. Womack, P.A.T, Michal Mižigár, Eva Danišová , Jan Čonka
moderator: Edita Stejskalová


In the debate we shall examine to what extent the Afrofuturistic concept applies to the Roma people and what aspects of the liberation history of Afro-Americans might inspire us today. We want to speak of the history of the Roma nation and attempts to rewrite our own history from emancipatory positions, of Roma folk literature in which the Roma is victorious within a fictive setting, and of contemporary Roma rap, which links up to the tradition of black music and by offering a resolution to the situation of Roma ethnicity aims to become an instrument of change here and now.

Alma Lily Rayner: Why Me?

Series of discussions on rape culture topic /


Why Me? Series of discussions on rape culture topic which accompanied Almy Lily Rayner exhibition Some Things My Father Put Inside My Vagina in Artwall Gallery, Prague

8.2., 28.2. 13.3. a 30.3.
tranzitdisplay
Dittrichova 9, Prague 2


The exhibition consists of a series 3D object based on real-life objects, photographs and memories of the artist and activist Alma Lily Rayner . Displayed items refer to the long-term sexual abuse, which the author experienced in childhood. Within Czech public space, this type of personal confession appears for the first time.

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of public discussions on rape culture entitled “Why me?”.
The titles of the discussions refer to questions often posed to women who were sexually assaulted. Their formulation suggests that women are to blame for what happened to them. Given the fact that rape victims are mostly women, the questions are formulated in the feminine gender (in Czech). Yet it must be emphasised that the problem of victim-blaming effects all people, regardless of their gender identity. The discussions will be held in Czech.
