«The Right to Truth. Conversations about Art and Feminism» is a book of interviews with female artists, curators, activists and thinkers from East and West Europe about women’s art, feminism and political changes. This is the result of research of Oksana Briukhovetska and her colleagues within the Tandem-Ukraine program in 2016-2019. It was published in Kyiv as a book in two languages – Ukrainian and English, with illustrations, and intended for non-commercial international distribution.
The mobility support was used to present the book in the countries where research was done: Poland, Czech Respublic and France. Oksana Briukhovetska organized public presentations together with the participants of interviews, since it would have an important impact to international feminist discourse to establish ties for solidarity and collaboration.
She expected the exchange between West and East European countries to be helpful for better understanding of common goals of feminist art and movement today, as well as to identify common problematic issues. She equally hoped it would help to provide gender equality in different levels of society, because texts help change minds.
I have visited three cities as planned. The women (artists, curators, activists and philosophers) from these countries (Poland, the Czech Republic and France) were interviewed in the book “The Right to Truth. Conversations on Art and Feminism”. My aim was to bring the portion of the printed books, which were published in Kyiv to Warsaw, Prague and Paris and to organize public events to spread the books and to discuss with the public.
