A red lightning bolt stirs Poland, and thence the world. A red lightning bolt, a tide of green handkerchiefs, thousands of bodies painted purple, the flap of multi-coloured flags, extending far and wide and flashing with danger in that instant. Uprisings that render an account of a time of promise in which feminist power becomes at once mass and radical, converging with other historical or intersectional fights, struggles of class, race and coloniality. At the same time, it is an historical moment that co-exists with a time of menace, where a new reaction attempts to advance on already conquered rights and diminish them, refuse them passage, break them up. A time in which mourning and celebration join, in which different generations mix and share the wisdom and experience of numerous women, share the irreverent and irrepressible passion of others. A time of rebellion in bedrooms, houses, on streets, and also in institutions. A time in which the museum, intersected and affected by these struggles, must take up its position.
The programme Together and Rising Up assembles a series of activities, exhibitions, rooms from the Collection, study groups, guided tours and digital projects inside the Museo, to be presented over the course of 2021, and thus reflecting the plural nature of transfeminist struggles and the complexity of new challenges for feminism.
