Women’s Corner

Programme | 20.10.2012

Women’s Corner

City Museum Niš, Gallery Sinagoga, 2 Davidova St.
October 20 - October 31, 2012

Exhibition curators: Ana Panić (MYH), Marija Đorgović (MYH) i Una Popović (MoCAB).

The exhibition Women’s Corner is a collaborative project by the Museum of Yugoslav History and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade.

This exhibition is organised in 2010, and in its original and full scope it was featured at the “25th of May” Museum (MYH) between May 15 and August 1. In 2011, at the initiative of the Commision for the Gender Equality of the City of Sombor Assembly, it was opened at the National Museum of Sombor. In 2012 the University Library “Nikola Tesla” in Niš present this exhibition to the Niš audience at the “Sinagoga” gallery

The exhibition Women’s Corner has a goal to present visually some of the questions related to the theme of life of woman in socialism, from the forties to the sixties, and through the form “one day in the life of working woman”. The model of everyday life, presented at the exhibition through several segments, social and private obligations during the day, actually punctuates different roles of woman in urban environment after the Second World War, as well as how these roles were officially, socially presented.

Socialism as a system strived to remove the concept of class divisions and to remove, through principle of general equality, the material, legal and formal inferiority of women. It was considered that a woman should take part in the work equally, that her role is not only to look after the household and children, but that it is a non-static, socially active role, which makes woman available and functional in all the spheres of life, in the field of work, politics, education.

During the Second World War, woman attains a perspective of independence and social-political equality. She becomes a fellow-fighter in the war, equally responsible in social life. However, as early as in the fifties, during a period of stabilization of the country, her socially engaged role “quiets down” and she returns to previously established roles in the reproductive family framework.

Exhibition Women’s Corner presents interviews with three women of older generation, from different social classes, professions and roles. Through their life stories, the social time frame and everyday life in Serbia in the mid 20th century are re-constructed, exactly as a confirmation, but also as a contrast to the proclaimed ideal of woman from the documents of the Women’s Antifascist Front (AFŽ) and texts in women’s magazines — active factors, which contribute to forming of social consciousness, taking over the educational role as well.
