Where did the Feminist History of Iraq Go?
Autonome beeldende kunst

In this project I traced back fragmentations of Iraq's important women and feminist history. A history which has been, and still is in big parts made invisible for multiple mainly political reason.
I found out during this research that forming an archive from fragmented material is on one hand very educational, on the other, difficult to make, because a lot of the information found is incomplete, or cannot be fully confirmed. Which demands a in depth research, where all possible recourses are sought.

I would like to note that this is an ongoing project.
