Fluency: English, German, Swedish

International upbringing: I was born in Uppsala, Sweden in 1993. My family moved to Terschelling Island (Netherlands) and Nashville (Tennessee, USA) before settling for most of my upbringing in Göttingen (Germany). I moved back to Uppsala to complete the International Baccalaureate program, and have spent intermittent periods of time in France (Toulouse, Paris, Quimperlé), Spain (Barcelona), Italy (Tuscany) and Scotland (Edinburgh). I am currently located in Vancouver, B.C.


Frauenkultur

Still in its infancy, Frauenkultur (German translation: Women’s Culture) is set to be an archive of findings in women’s culture and philosophy. The goal is to exhibit an array of theory, writing and cultural meaning-making by and for women. The selection process and curatorial philosophy prioritizes material that is published by women-owned presses and/or other outlets (such as women-centred artist run centres). Not only is the text/theory/art worth archiving and making available, in addition Frauenkultur aims to draw attention to the material vehicles that make possible the emergence of a women’s culture/a women’s “public”. That means taking seriously the philosophies of aesthetic and design choices that help gather and solidify ideas in practice. The next steps for this project include solidifying a platform to gather the archival materials, as well as deciding on organizational genres that are categorically relevant to women.

EVENTS

Max Dashu: May, 2017 at Simon Fraser University
Max Dashu founded the Suppressed Histories Archives in 1970 to research and document women's history from an international perspective. We invited her for a visual talk on Witch Hunts and The Cultural Legacies of Misogynist Persecution. Over 100 women attended.

Subversive Stitch: August, 2017 at The Vancouver Women's Library
Subversive Stitch was a two-day collective quilting workshop for the purpose of exchanging knowledge on stitching, embroidery, and weaving. While listening to recorded texts from the library’s archive, together we began the construction of a quilt inspired by female authors for use in the Vancouver Women's Library.
