“Hysteriska Historiska (2018-) is a project that aims to reflect different states in which institutional violence aims to erase us women from writing- or taking part of history.
This project was curated and produced by Gallery Majkens, feminist mobile gallery, and hosted by ABF-Huset.
This exhibition opened on the 29th of November, 2018 and was going until December 13th of the same year.
Just one day after its vernissage, Hysteriska Historiska was abruptly canceled by ABF’s administration without any possibility of dialogue.
Histeriska Historiska planned different activities such as a knitting- in/for-public-spaces workshops, live painting, and spoken word interventions. We hosted a space for video work by colleagues, Angélica Chávez, Paola Torres and Ami Kohara.
People who’s work and effort built Hysteriska Historiska: Magdalena Blom, Marie-Therese Luger, Natalie Högström, Lotta Hedin, La Wara, Hysterix collective (Cecilia Rejtman and Angélica Chávez), among others.
