Myths and Medusas
City of Women event series
6.–11. 12. 2022


What from the past do we wish to keep for the future? Which stories haven’t reached us, but should’ve had? Which “truths” remain unquestioned? What would happen if Muses broke out of Museums and rebelled like Medusa? And what if their shadows, the wives and the female assistants of male artists, would step into the light? 

The City of Women invites you to retell our past, see our present, and imagine our future possibilities through the lens of feminist myth interpretations. 

Our welcome treat is Svetlana Slapšak’s insight into some of these questions. Read our Honorary President’s text “Muses Breaking Out from the Museum”

Welcome to the City of Women!
