HERE COME THE WOMEN
The work relies on research done in collaboration with Andreja Dugandžić, within CRVENA’s Association for Culture and Arts project “What has our struggle given us?”. The research manifested as an online archive of documents, photographs, books and interviews about the feminist heritage of the Antifascist Front of Women of Yugoslavia, exploring the participation of Yugoslav women in the Second World War and their indispensable contribution to (re)building the Socialist state. The People’s Front decided to abolish the Anti-Fascist Front of Women in 1953 the same year when Atomic War Command (Object ARK) started to be built. A different cold war started for women. Again they were about to be domesticated, placed back into the private sphere of the house, to perform their “natural” roles.
