The Swiss Turkish art Project "Womanhood & Sustainability" examines female perspectives of the urgent issue of sustainability through art.

For this unique transcultural project, Swiss artists Talaya Schmid, Aglaia Haritz and Patricia Jacomella joined Turkish artists Gözde Ilkin, SENA and Ecem Yerman in Ankara for artistic exchange and production process to generate art talks, workshops, performances, panel discussions and works for an exhibition at BARIN HAN, İstanbul. The exhibition connects key figures in art, feminism and environmental issues and will open on 7 April 2022.

In this dialogue of feminist artists from different generations, the following questions will be explored: What can women and art do for a more just and sustainable future? How can all that which has been separated up to now - nature and culture, individual and community, different disciplines of knowledge, rationality and other forms of consciousness - be brought together again? How can new connections and networks be created through artistic projects? 

Consciously, sustainable methods will be used in the implementation of this art project, such as mutual learning, participation of the population in workshops and establishment of different collaborations with professionals and everyday experts on sustainability issues. "Womanhood & Sustainability" also questions its own production conditions, acts locally and conserves resources.


The project is designed as an experiment and process to enable encounters, co-learning and collaborations with diverse groups, to generate new stories together, and to reflect, highlight and advance the issue of sustainability from perspectives of intersectionality, and non-anthropocentricity and transdisciplinarity.

In addition to the transformative role of art and culture as idea generators and catalysts, the feminine has a particular potential to transform society in this time of ecological and public health crisis. Community action and thinking, empathy and caring are the currencies that will lead us to a sustainable future.
