The web exhibition Looking Back to Look Forward highlights works and artists from the City of Women archive that focus on collective actions, precarious labour, structural exploitation, solidarity and poetic protest. The works chosen specifically speak to the unique history of the former Yugoslavia region, with a focus on socially engaged art. As well as mapping their own curatorial research, the selection offers further context to curator’s collaboration with artist Alicja Rogalska whose work Kinds of Pressure is presented in Škuc Gallery (2 – 18 October 2019).
