Curated by Christine Langinauer
For her final individual project, Seventh-wave feminism, CuratorLab participant, Christine Langinauer commissioned a number of artists and writers to contribute to a publication/pamphlet, where they each were invited to speculate, explore, and react, through their individual mediums, to possible future scenarios and projections.
By looking back at the current year 2017, from a hundred years into the future, the project takes as its departure point the political discussions of Langinauer’s native country Finland from a feminist perspective. The focus of the publication is on how the things we do today shape the future. The project proposes that by the year 2117 we would have reached a Seventh-wave feminism, the last wave of the feminist struggles where we will finally be strong enough to overcome all forms of oppression.
