The exhibtion The Feminist Pencil – 2″, curated by artist Victoria Lomasko and art historian Nadia Plungian, took place in Moscow from October 23rd until November 6th 2013. An unforgettable experience for me as participant! Social Graphics and Feminist Art were shown, including my comic about Rabbi Regina Jonas in Russian language. To the wide social program I added a Comic Lecture with practical Workshop: “Female Comic Biographies and autobiographical Fragments”. Back in Berlin I wrote two articles about my impressions, released at Der Tagesspiegel: “Kunst im Gegenwind”  and WordWithoutBorders: “Feminist Pencils (and Pens)”. And I recommend an informative article on “The Feminist Pencil-1”, which took place 2012. You can download a brochure here, the article is on page 30ff. Photos: Olya Akhmetyeva Выставка “Феминистский Карандаш – 2 “, кураторы художница Виктория Ломаско и искусствовед Надя Плунгян, прошла в Москве с 23 октября по 6 ноября 2013 Незабываемые впечатления для меня, как участника! Социальная Графика и Феминистское Искусство были показаны, в том числе мой комикс про раввина Regina Jonas на русском языке. К широкой социальной программе я добавила Comic Лекция с практическим семинаром:. “Женский Comic Биографии и автобиографические Фрагменты”. Вернувшись в Берлин, я написала две статьи о моих впечатлениях, выпущенные в Der Tagesspiegel: “Kunst им Gegenwind “и WordWithoutBorders”: Феминистские Карандаши (и Ручки) “. И я рекомендую информативную статью на тему «Феминистский Карандаш-1 “, который состоялся в 2012. Вы можете скачать брошюру здесь here, статья на стр. 30ff  Фото: Оля Ахметьева
