Terra Femme

In the presence of the artist Anahita Asadifar (... A RESPONSE), Martina Genetti and Lisa Heusschober (curators).

Activating archives and revisiting existing images and words, enables us to bring those voices into the present that have long been excluded from narrations. Feminist views, perspectives and documentation - often invisible or incomplete - are rediscovered through revision and appropriation, interwoven with present narratives and thoughts, and tranformed into a language of their own through montage and voice-over. This process opens up a dialogue that allows us to speak to and through the voices of the past, to draw and rely on them, in order to find a common, collective language.

Supporting Film: ... A RESPONSE
AT 2021, 5 min., Shortfilm, OV English

Director: Anahita Asadifar
In ... a response, gestures, excerpts, text fragments, and image segments with and by Claude Cahun, Audre Lorde, Susan Sontag, and bell hooks are assembled, creating a new conversation. The montage becomes the filmmaker's language in questioning the role and agency of the narrator: Whose stories are heard and whose stories have not found voice? What does it mean to give voice?

US 2021, 62 min., Documentary, OV English

Director: Courtney Stephens
Departing from the loss of her own mobility, the filmmaker looks at travelogues and amateur videos made by women in the 1920-50s and sets out to find a female gaze. Essayistic and speculative, fragments from archives join the stories of those who were in the position to travel and film. The voice-over appropriates the narratives of the women, highlights the ongoing legacy of patriarchal violence, and questions the prevailing gaze regime: Who sees and who is seen? What do these videos tell us about the absence of women in archives?
