Violent Bodies

24 February @ 11:00 - 25 February @ 18:00

5£ – 13£

Violent Bodies


Exhibition, Workshop & Performances

As inhabitants of the world, we are part of an interconnected system.

We influence the people, places and entities around us in discreet and obvious ways, and ultimately disrupt each other’s lives.

This exhibit will expand this moment of inevitable disruption, and explore its impact on our bodies and our sense of self.

Through VIOLENT BODIES, we will examine our web of relationships through the lens of a single, violent, moment. Here, we do not use the term ‘violent’ to refer directly to brutality, physical hurt or pain, but rather to highlight the intensity of these connections and these shared moments that we often do not want or summon but that happen regardless.

VIOLENT BODIES is therefore an investigation on the topic of trust, both towards other bodies as well as our own. 

The exhibition will feature interactive artworks, workshops, talks and performances. See the full programme below!


Femanifesto is an open-source collective for emerging interdisciplinary artists, performers and more. As a radical platform, we host live events and exhibitions exploring vital topics through a feminist lens.
