Feminist Wallpaper

Megafån is a group from Finland, made up of three artists: Freja Bäckman, Fredrika Biström, and Heidi Lunabba. Their first project is called "Feminist Wallpaper" explained here:

We are interested in the interface between activism and art. We wish our art to function as a platform for communication and that it should create spaces for people to meet in. We wish our art not only to comment or reflect, but also play an active part in the shaping the society we live in. . . .

800 people took part in the feminist wallpaper project, every one of them came to our mobile studio to be photographed during one of the fourteen opportunities that we arranged. Information about these opportunities was spread through mailing lists, newspapers, and radio. Everyone who participated was given the opportunity to define their own feminism in a speech bubble on the wallpaper.

I'll be keeping my eye on these artists! I would love to have Feminist Wallpaper in my house!!!

Eагning pizza іs a gоod timе,
not thаt diffіcult, and a splendidly resourcеful way to imрreѕs fгіеnds and family unit ωith
your cooκing comρetenсies - and also make deliciouѕ meals thаt don't split the spending budget. The landfill extended the place so it can be put into use to make on.
