Feminism is often connected with fight, frustration and anger. But feminist activism offers a lot of chances to laugh as well. Meet the cartoonist and the stand-up comedian who are combining political activism with a big doze of humor!

15.30-16.30 Discussion: Men in feminism, men about feminism
Is feminism a women’s thing or can men contribute? If yes, from which position and with which perspective? Three men from Serbia and Sweden will share their experiences and views.
With Christoph Fielder, Ivan Živić, Relja Popović. Moderator: Hana Ćopić
17.00-18.00 Discussion: What’s love got to do with it*?
From where did we get the idea of romantic love? Can love exist without knowledge? Why is the heterosexual nuclear family so worshiped as a way of organizing life? What can we discover when we deconstruct the concept of love? And what has Mileva Maric-Einsten and Whitney Houston got to do with this?
With Liv Strömqvist, cartoonist and Jelisaveta Blagojevic, philosopher. Moderator :Christina Wassholm
18.30-20.00 Premier of documentary film ”12-15%” followed by a panel discussion
The documentary from Women’s Information and Documentation Centre (WINDOC) deals with the appearance of women and marginalized groups in media. It is based on the results of several years of media research by WINDOC, with illustrative examples and interviews with persons involved in media work in different ways. Through a collage of different experiences, thinking, creative suggestions for possible changes, richly illustrated facts and examples, this theme gets a new dimension and opens up new questions.

“The trace of human teeth” is a play based on a true story about a shelter for women and children who are victims of violence in Belgrade, who had to shut down after a certain incident that the play will show. Through the roles of Z.K. and Grozdana the life stories of different women from the shelter are woven together.The play tells about women who are coming to the shelter from different situations of domestic violence – about their lives before and after the violence. The characters also talk about their bodies, motherhood and sexuality, and with their different standpoints they enrich the heavy topics with humor, sarcasm and irony. More correctly, the play is a walk through tragic-comic dialogues, rises and falls of two completely different women.
