Synopsis

The project problematizes the low presence and representation of women in public spaces. It derives from a simple question: if the Slovenian capital has as many as 360 monuments of local significance, what is the number of annotations mentioning women? I’m Walking Behind You and Watching You is organized around 4 different formats: a radio intervention (The forgotten half), a performative installation (Alive Sculpture), a performative guided tour (I’m walking behind you and watching you) and a video (Ljubljana – City of Women). The project was made possible by the contribution of many people, among which Alenka Puhar, Iva Tratnik, Zvezdana Novakovič, Ana Sluga, Iva Tratnik, Maja Šubic, Mina Arko, Mojca Smerdu, Rene Rusjan, Saba Skaberne and Sanja Ajdišek.

 

The guided tour is a female map of the city in which memory holders form the missing and ignored stories of women who worked their way through this city, created it, swore by it and breathed it, as well as those who migrated to it every day. If the Slovenian capital has as many as 360 monuments of local significance, what is the number of annotations mentioning women?

 

The tour last three hours and concludes in Slaščičarna on Stari Trg, where we will, while drinking a special coffee, discuss about how to set up better practices around women representation in public spaces. Due to a limited number of spectators (30), please make a prior reservation at pr@cityofwomen.org. Price: € 5.
