An invitation to participate in a delegated performance:

Misplaced Women? is a delegated performance in which women volunteers carry packed suitcases in the public spaces of Zagreb, repeatedly pausing to pack and unpack as they move about the city. In this project, Tanja Ostojic enacts an everyday life activity that signifies a displacement as common to transients, migrants, and disaster refugees, as it is to the itinerant artist traveling the world to earn her living. Ostojic’s street performance continues themes of migration, desired mobility, and relations of power and vulnerability in regards to the mobile female body, found in much of her previous work.

You are invited to perform Misplaced Women? and to share your experience during the public discussion on Friday night in the Zagreb Youth Theatre. (see program schedule here)

Locations suggested by the artist include the main train station, Glavin Kolodor (inside and outside); women’s house, Zenska Kuca (in front or inside); Motel Jezevo, refugee camp for illegalized people, 10 km from Zagreb; main shopping mall/market; conference or performance room in the conference.
