read-the-feminist-manual was accepted for the exhibition during the #xcoax2022 conference in Portugal. Alas, the organization doesn't cover expenses, and on top of it, I'd need to pay registration. I cannot afford it, neither I want to pay for being part of an exhibition. I find it strange that independent artists need to pay while their art research is already so precarious.
As a friend put it, in the north they pay you, in the south you pay.
@mara Yes, sadly that is the reality of academia... This idea that you pay to publish and present your work is deeply rooted in the academia. It is expected that the institution you're affiliated supports the expenses or some institution that supports the arts and culture from your country. It's like a circle for those who already have the privilege.
@mara I will be there too and would be great to connect and get some of your zines!
