Dear friends of re.act.feminism,

We are delighted to announce the upcoming opening of re.act.feminism #2 
- a performing archive at the Galerija Miroslav Kraljević in Zagreb, 

Opening of the archive: Saturday, 5 May 2012, 7 pm

The mobile archive will be on show from 5 May — 26 May 2012 and is 
accompanied by discursive programmes that foreground and incite local 
research on the history of performance art in Croatia.

re.act.feminism #2 - a performing archive is a continually expanding, 
temporary and living performance archive travelling through six European 
countries from 2011 to 2013.

It presents feminist, gendercritical and queer performance art by over 
120 artists and artist collectives from the 1960s to the beginning of 
the 1980s, as well as contemporary positions. The research focus is on 
Eastern and Western Europe, the Mediterranean and Middle East, the US 
and several countries in Latin America. On its route through Europe this 
temporary archive will continue to expand through local research and 
cooperation with art academies and universities. It will also be 
‘animated’ through exhibitions, screenings, performances and discussions 
along the way, which will continuously contribute to the archive.
