Véronique Bourgoin has invited several internationally renowned artists to the exhibition “City of Women”, most of whom are associated with Silverbridge (Royal Book Lodge) and question the future of women, their place and their role. “City of Women” presents a variety of productions, visions and reflections that destabilise patriarchal, gendered roles and official representations of women in our time.
The exhibition “City of Women” is part of an extensive project supported by the European Union that has linked a number of partner organisations and individual participants in a processual work context since summer 2006. Under the responsibility of ATELIER REFLEXE in Montreuil near Paris, led by Véronique Bourgoin, Nina Korhonen, Rainer Iglar and Dirk Bakker, a series of workshops took place under the title EU WOMEN.
