Sarajevo Open Centre, in partnership with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, continues with the lectures within the third cycle of lectures and feminist discussions Somebody said feminism. The eight and the last lecture within the III cycle, titled Women and Museums will be held on Wednesday, 2 December this year at the Museum of Literature and Theatre Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, starting at 6 P.M.

The speakers will be Sarita Vujković, Museum of Modern Arts of Republika Srpska; Zlatan Delić, Museum of Literature and Theatre Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina; Aida Salketić, Cultural Heritage without Borders (CHwB), and the moderator of the discussions will be Aida Kalender, Action for culture.

We use this occasion to, by conducting feminist discussions, open a question whether the museums are practicing systematic violence against women in Bosnia and Herzegovina; what stands behind that symbolic violence, if any of it exists, as well as to articulate the need for an on-line women’s museum.

The same day, we are promoting the second edition of the book that fights against the violence of oblivion, named – “Women Documented. Women and Public Life in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 20th Century”. It has been more than a year since the book “Women Documented” has been out. Many people, directly or indirectly associated to the book, contacted us – praising our work or benevolently criticizing it. In the meantime, the authors of certain chapters came to new data. All the participants who join this event will receive a copy of the revised edition of the book.

The implementation of this activity is supported by Swedish government through The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and Friedrich Ebert Foundation B&H.
