This year at the Crossing Europe Film Festival we spoke to Hana Jušić, the director of the film "Quit staring at my plate", which won the CROSSING EUROPE Award "Best fiction" this year. We asked her about her movie and the role of gender in it, as well as in the film industry. We also hear from Amanda Livanou, producer of the film "Park", who we asked about gender in Greece.
Both interviews are in English.

"5-2 Minutes"- feminist news

With a show drawn from the Verbund Collection, Vienna's Mumok is dedicating itself to feminist art from the 1970s. The exhibition on positions of the "feminist avant-garde" takes place under the simple title "Woman". It unfolds a dense and exciting look at artistic strategies in a time of great upheaval -
Of course, "liberated sexuality" is also a key theme. The Austrian artist Renate Bertlmann is also represented at the exhibition. The exhibition can be seen until September 3, 2017.

The aforementioned Austrian pioneer of feminist art Renate Bertlmann was honored with the highest award of the Republic: the Grand Austrian State Prize, which is endowed with 30,000 euros. Bertlmann was the first female visual artist to receive the State Prize since 2009. in 2009, Brigitte Kowanz received the highest award of the Republic.
Bertlmann's works had "developed an iconic effect in feminist art", the jury explained its decision. "Through her art, she has decisively expanded the scope of female self-determination."////////////////////////////////////
