Malmoe Free University for Women (MFK) hereby cordially invites you to take part in a collective staging of a feminist utopia! Let's treat ourselves to a temporary amnesia about the practical aspects of the here and now and instead try to visualize an INTENSE ECSTATIC FUTURE together.

We concentrate on the room we are occupying and within the surrounding walls we imagine no longer being in opposition - no more defenses, no longer the feeling of being two steps behind. We imagine the world as it will be when we have won, the day after the revolution, when patriarchy, capitalism, racism, sexism and their brothers have fallen, and a new world rises from the ashes. We allow ourselves no compromises, going all the way, to the extreme. And from that glorious point in the future we recount our steps back to where we are today, mapping out our path to success.

2. How do we do it?:
This will be a collective creative process were we will work with practical exercises, lively discussions, personal reflection and writing. Use of the body is obligatory, a hands-on, mapping of the future. If you are not ready to get down and dirty – don’t bother knocking.

3. About Malmoe Free University for Women – MFK
Malmoe Free University for Women (MFK) is an ongoing art project initiated in Sweden in 2006 by artists Lisa Nyberg and Johanna Gustavsson. The goal of MFK is to create a place where art, politics and feminism are brought together and combined, to enable space for creative, intellectual, political dialogue and action. MFK activates alternative kinds of knowledge production and distribution through activities such as workshops, lectures and film screenings. Issues of art, feminism and politics are discussed with a specific focus on how to counter dominant power relations, gender structures and normative thinking. By combining theory and practice MFK explores the meaning of collective action.
