WOMEN ON THE MOVE - Eastern Europe between Tradition and Action
September 7, 2022- November 6, 2022


BERLIN, GERMANY - Across Eastern Europe, a new generation of women is challenging gender norms. Women on the Move, which premiered on September 7, 2022, at f³ – freiraum für fotografie gallery, highlights nine female photographers from Eastern Europe. The exhibition focuses on their mission to break the stereotypes that women were subjected to throughout Eastern European history. They are “publicly shattering the traditional cliches of women as workers, mothers, or sex objects,” according to the press release from the f³ – freiraum für fotografie gallery. Many groups, such as Femen in Ukraine, Pussy Riot in Russia, and the 2020 Women's Marches in Belarus, are standing up for their rights and making them known to the public.

Throughout the exhibition, Elena Subach, Alicja Rogalska, Natalia Kepsz, Tasiana Tkakchova, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, Oksana Parafeniuk, Violetta Savchits, Agata Szymanska-Medina, and Maria Kapajeva tell the stories of women who are challenging these gender norms. Photographs by Justyna Mielnikiewicz highlight the women of the group Femen, founded in Kiev. These images tell the story of women's rights groups who have performed topless demonstrations in support of women's rights for over ten years. Another photographer, Tastina Tkachova, documents women who have had abortions and experienced marital violence. Each of these photographers tells a unique and compelling story, igniting a fire in those who view their photographs.
 
Guests can view the work of these nine photographers until November 6, 2022, at f³ – freiraum für fotografie in Berlin, Germany.
