The exhibition ”Women Commentators” organized by Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation is dedicated to the art of the young generation of female artists who comment on current political, social and artistic affairs through their art. Main criteria for the selection of pieces for the exhibition include the strength of the artist’s position on the chosen subject, as well as the artistic presentation of conclusions and personal reflections on topics considered uncharacteristic as they relate to women. Since these pieces are not anonymous, they constitute remarkably brave comments on each particular issue.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a range of events, such as the night screening of documentary films made by women filmmakers, presented and awarded at Planete+ Doc Film Festival.
