No Women No Kraj

No women no kraj, an exhibition of illustration by Dorota Pawlicka (Kraj means country in Polish, pronounced: cry).

The title of the exhibition is the appropriation of one of the most popular slogans of the women Black Protests in Poland. The illustrations collide the current situation with the history indicating that the Polish feminist movement was not created along with protests from a few years ago. Watercolors show the old stories presenting the silhouettes of both Polish and Dutch women: activists in women's movements, pioneers of feminism, being an example of independence in their time. Poland and the Netherlands are very different today, also when it comes to women's rights. The juxtaposition of these silhouettes will allow us to observe how much the women's stories were / are universal.
