BLACK VENUS PROTEST is a project by CALDODECULTIVO Collective, built with the complicity of a group of Polish female activists, who during the month of August 2017 have developed a series of performances / protests in various places of the city of Gdansk, which have been recorded as a video that shows that experience.
CALDODECULTIVO about the project:
Nowadays, womenâ€™s security, sexuality, and reproductive rights are in stake not only in Poland but around the world. There is a war against female bodies lead by far right politicians and religious leaders, although it is not war fought by guns but through â€œdemocratic meansâ€ it
is not less violent. Inspired by the Black Protest and the Women Strike this projectâ€™s objective is to create small groups of protest that interrupt the daily life and the public space making present the struggle for the rights of women.
Performers: Magdalena Mellin, Monika WiÅ„czyk, Katarzyna Pastuszak, Magda DoborzyÅ„ska, Agnieszka Sprawka
Caldodecultivo Collective are conducting their project on the artistic residency in LAZNIA CCA between 2016 – 2018.
