Visualizing Russian Feminism


From December 9-15, 2016, the KnowledgeLab hosted Visualizing Russian Feminism, a multimedia exhibition created by students as a culminating project for RES 236, Contemporary Russian Women Writers, taught by Hilary Fink.


With features of propaganda posters and other printed images, video clips, writing, and a slideshow of Russian feminist photography, the exhibition showcased artistic expressions of female identity in Russia from the early revolutionary days of the Bolsheviks to the twenty-first century.


Thank you to everyone who attended the exhibit!


This project was funded through a KnowledgeLab mini-grant. Mini-grants are available to all Smith students, faculty, classes, and student orgs for projects relating to the themes of knowledge creation, knowledge sharing, and the future of libraries and campus learning spaces, including pop-up installations, events, and more.
