We proudly present Domestic Systemic Pandemic, an exhibition connected to the 25th of November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. 

The exhibition gathers eighteen local and international artists, in collaboration with different organisations to approach violence towards women as a systemic phenomena. A phenomena where many actors participate: a partner, a family member, society as a whole and state institutions. Through spoken word, performance, installation, video, painting, collage and textile, all works relate in various ways to the effects of violence. Some works are biographically based on personal experience of domestic abuse, and some relates to historical events behind the day #25N, highlighting the story of the Mirabal Sisters. Others’ concern widely protested femicides, like the Lucia Perez murder for instance, a tragic event which instigated the Latin American protest and movement “Ni Una Mas, Ni Una Menos” meaning “Not one more (death), not one (woman) less”. 

Domestic Systemic Pandemic wishes to raise awareness, to provide opportunities for the audience to reflect on the different contexts where gendered violence is inflicted against women as a group. We would also like to foster discussion of our current (pandemic) times of covid-19 restrictions and lock-downs, where domestic violence towards women has grown enormously, both globally and here in Sweden. Due to these state regulations limiting the movement of its citizens the victim is being forced to spend more time with her abuser. 

Due to the covid-restrictions, this event will mainly be hosted online. The performance taking place on the vernissage will be live-streamed from Detroit Stockholm Gallery, accompanied by spoken word streamed from another location. 

A selection of works are scheduled to be shown online, and on display in Detroit´s gallery window, viewable from the outside so both passers-by and online-visitors get a “safe” access to this domestic-systemic-pandemic exhibition.

Special Thanks to Detroit Stockholm and all collaborating organisations:
