As part of the Year of Germany in Russia, we created Feminist Translocalities exhibition which already took place in St. Petersburg, Togliatti, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Irkutsk, Omsk, Perm, Ufa, Novosibirsk. Exhibitions are also planned in Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar, Kaliningrad, Smolensk. In each city, the exhibition is prepared by local curators and local artists take part in it.
How inclusive is our understanding of history? The posters tell us about experiences that have been consistently excluded from the discussions about women in history. Black women and women of color, migrant workers, trans*persons, non-heterosexual women - it's important to see their role in the stories of resistance. Only by understanding the complexity of the past can we think about other scenarios for the future.

Within the framework of Feminist Translocalities, we also presented posters of the exhibition “Leningradski Feminism
