JOIN US MAY 1ST AROUND STREETS OF LONDON!
We are looking for activists, artists, academics, entrepreneurs, and volunteers of all races and backgrounds (female AND male) who want to get involved in the making and placing of the vaginal molds.
Flowers of Democracy 2016 aims to create a wider dialogue around gender equality and feminism through creation our/your own unique vagina moulds and on May 1st, these flowers of democracy will come into bloom in various locations around London.
WHO WE ARE?
Flowers of Democracy launched this ‘art action’ in the summer of 2015 in Ukraine, as a way of highlighting the plight of women in the ongoing conflict in Eastern Ukraine (CBC.CA.Video about FoD).
However, the concept behind FoD goes beyond the Ukrainian border and relates to the oppression of women everywhere. Women are still underrepresented in many different aspects of public life, including (inter)national politics, the media, the army, executive positions within corporations, and in the arts. Since its inception, FoD has grown into a organisation of female activists who are teaching women in Ukraine and beyond to take ownership and control over their own bodies.
Action will realize by Art Represent (a platform for artists who belong to communities living in conflict).
From April 21 every day till May 1st you can come to the gallery of Art Represent and learn how to make plaster mold of your/your partner own vagina, or artist Maria Kulikovska and other activists of Flowers of Democracy will make cast of your pussy.
