Feminism and art in post-apartheid South Africa

25 years has passed since South Africa introduced democracy, and Nelson Mandela was elected president and started the work on reconciliation and reconstruction. Developments in the country have been cumbersome and fatiguing, and Mandela’s goal of reconstruction and development has been successful to a limited extent. Corruption, violence, gender-based discrimination and xenophobia are some of the negative aspects that characterize South Africa today. Together with artist Berni Searle we want to look at current situation and the role of art in post-Apartheid South Africa.

Contemporary art in China - from a feminist and queer perspective

China generally experiences a setback in gender equality, and the country is ranked # 103 of 149 countries in The Global Gender Gap Report 2018. Female artists were invisible in Beijing’s art market and galleries in the 1990s, and it has been challenging for women to establish themselves as contemporary artists. Shi Tou has against all odds succeeded in becoming a recognized artist. The questions raised in this seminar are: Does the newer generation of female and queer artists have a better starting point and other possibilities? Is it room for politically active artists in 2019, 30 years after the protests and the dream of democracy were violently stopped at Tiananmen Square in Beijing? These questions and Shi Tou’s art will form the backdrop for a conversation between Shi Tou and Elisabeth L. Engebretsen at Kunstplass. Engebretsen is an Associate Professor at theUniversity of Stavanger (UiS) with expertise in queer, theory, gender issues and contemporary China.
