Zuzanna Hertzberg

This solo show by Zuzanna Hertzberg, an interdisciplinary artist, artivist and researcher, has been conceived as a visual narrative of the history of Jewish women’s activism in the 20th century. The project contributes to her building a new affective archive of women’s experience. Galeria Studio presents artworks on fabric, objects and paintings. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of spoken word performances by the artist. By recovering the voice of women, narrating their lives and transferring them to the present day, Hertzberg develops a herstory of Jewish women's resistance.
