GUIDED TOUR: The rotten smell is you closing event: Guided tour, Performance, Discussion

Speaking from today’s perspective as we are closing the exhibition The rotten smell is you, and this moment in time might have been the softest and most effortless entry of the fourth wave discourse into the mainstream. We can’t say that these topics penetrated all the hermetic bubbles with this movement, but they did saturate it.

We cordially invite you for an evening of closing events accompanying the exhibition The rotten smell is you on Sunday 15th of October at 18h in A Window at the Kunsthalle Bratislava and V Klub, on the ground floor of the main building. The evening will start with a guided tour led by the exhibition’s curator Jelisaveta Rapaić at 18h, followed by a performance entitled Pole Dance, a performative lecture… by Aja Janković at 19h, and a discussion starting at 19:15h with Nikola Balberčáková, Markéta Garai, Sophia Giovannitti, Paula Gogola, Dominika Jašeková (Odyseus) & Pennie Key reflecting on the topics of sex work, art, boxing, transness, pole dancing, hyperfeminity and many more…
