Are battles over gender equality and equal rights still important? In what way is feminism relevant today? SKMU Sørlandets Kunstmuseum contributes to the debate with the exhibition The Beginning Is Always Today, featuring forty Scandinavian artists whose works address feminism in the last twenty years.
‘My impression is that feminism is almost a taboo word in Sørlandet (southern Norway), in the rest of Norway, and also in certain other parts of Scandinavia. Why? Are all the battles for equality won, both here and in the rest of the world? Do we enjoy so much justice and equality that there is nothing left to fight for? And if so, is that any reason to be provoked and irritated by the very concept of feminism?,’ asks museum director Karin Hindsbo at SKMU Sørlandets Kunstmuseum.
