show.Rooms_global: Feminism

18.-22. 7. 2014 Tirgu Mures, RO

show.Rooms_global took place in 2014 in Romania and Austria. The connection to the club Zauberberg, which defined the taboo subject that was to be shown, was made by the guide Ildiko Kovac. Since she lives and works both in Villach and Tirgu Mures, she qualified as a guide in this project. As a result of the cooperation, the association Zauberberg designed and realized together with the initiator show.Rooms a programme with exhibition, lectures, workshops and an interviewfilm on the premises of an empty business room, entitled "Why Feminism?”
"Feminism has a hundred-year history in Europe, yet it has not yet succeeded to beat roots in our country (Romania). Why would one need feminism? We seek answers to these questions together; by means of an interactive presentation we show women and their fate." (Zauberberg)
