Join us to celebrate the CEED Feminisms Bibliography launch, hosted by Biblioteka, a reference library originally from Kyiv now based in London. Free copies of the printed bibliography will be distributed, with readings featuring extracts from texts selected by members of the CEED Feminisms research network.

The CEED Feminisms Bibliography distils conversations and references offered by the CEED Feminisms research network, over 40 practitioners based in and beyond the UK, who participated in a British Art Network supported programme between September 2023 and April 2024 after joining the project through an open call.

The impetus for the bibliography responds to an asymmetry in the translation and circulation of feminist writing coming from Central Eastern Europe, or by writers in the diaspora, with many more feminist texts travelling West to East historically; copies will be distributed to a number of libraries across the UK.

Both research document and resource, the pamphlet aims to share and pass on the CEED Feminisms research network’s conversations about Central Eastern European and diasporic feminist writing and art practices, shaped by Feminist Duration Reading Group’s methodology of reading texts out loud, together. It addresses themes first identified by the research network, as well as subject matter explored in four-part event series, ranging from gendered labour and ‘East’ to ‘West’ migration, to transnational feminist solidarity in war. Read more about CEED Feminisms here.

Designed by Alessia Arcuri, the sprawling document’s form and content questions the scope of ‘CEED feminism’, problematising ‘Central Eastern Europe’ as a container for enormous cultural diversity and contextualising feminist discourses bound to post/state socialism, anti/imperialism and de/colonialism.

The event takes place at Biblioteka, located on the ground floor of the Architectural Association. Please note that access to Biblioteka is via four steps. If you require assistance to access the building, have any additional access questions, or wish to request support via our access and mobility budget to cover childcare and travel for a limited number of participants who live outside of London, please contact Annabelle M√∂dlinger, Production Assiatant: [email protected].
