Andreja Kulunčić: women.index / Forum: women’s sexuality

Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art, 14 Pariska street
May 29, 2013. at 6 P.M.

This forum was devoted to the construction of the concept of female sexuality through various periods in history, activist practice and theoretical models, from the Victorian era to the present day.

Female sexuality is considered through the use of a gender-centred discourse of the history of art, philosophy and also of feminist and lesbian activism. We endeavoured in this to demonstrate a departure from essentialist definitions and hypotheses, putting the concept of female sexuality in the context of, among other things, the field of politics.

Marina Martić considered the role of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in the overthrow of class and gender restrictions in Victorian society, an epoch in which women had almost no freedom in the choice of partners. If one is concerned with the models who sat for the Pre-Raphaelites, they were married women of the upper classes, girls from the working class who were eking out their meagre wages, or prostitutes from the lowest levels of society, is it possible to talk of emancipation through the possibility of expressing female sexuality and creativity?

Adriana Zaharijević considered the political spaces of sexuality, posing the following questions. Does our sexuality belong to someone and to whom? Is it inherent to the individual and in which way is sexuality politicised? The talk was prompted by the statement of Norman Tebbit, a British Conservative, of what the world would be like today if there had been lesbian queens on the throne of the UK.

Lepa Mladenović took up the questions of how lesbian activists through the history of feminism have fought to make themselves visible. What is the Lavender Menace? How have they used art to achieve their political aims? Presentation of the work of four women photographers, Zanele Muholi, Joan Biren, Tee Corinne and Cathy Cade, led on to discussion of the political subjectivisation of the lesbian community.

Taking part in the forum:
Marina Martić, art historian
Adriana Zaharijević, theorist
Lepa Mlađenović, feminist and lesbian consultant and activist

Moderator:
Tanja Marković, psychologist and feminist activist
