Women’s Corner

Cultural Centre ''Dom Omladine'' (gallery in front of the Americana hall), 22/IV Makedonska St.
October 30 - November 10, 2013.

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. Having achieved great success in Belgrade, the exhibition Women’s Corner travelled to several cities in Serbia. 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, and in the last year the University Library “Nikola Tesla” in Niš brought this exhibition to the Niš audience at the “Sinagoga” gallery

The curators were invited to show the Women’s Corner exhibition once more, this time in a somewhat reduced form, to the Belgrade audience as a part of the project “Ženerama – Ženski medijski forum” (Femalerama – Female Media Forum) organised at the Culture Centre “Dom Omladine” in Belgrade (October 29-30, 2013). The exhibition is organised within the framework of the jubilee celebration of the first national feminist conference organised in 1978, with the objective of reminding the general public on the importance this conference had for the development of the feminist movement in the whole of the former Yugoslavia, but also for the development of the national civil society at large.

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.
