Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the documentary performance It Pisses Me Off by Mariam Agamyan, which will take place on Tuesday, March 8, at 18:30 at Plivka cultural space.

The 8th of March, International Day for Women’s Emancipation, is a great opportunity to articulate what pisses us off. Do we want to say it? It is something that remains untold on the everyday level, something that is not an issue for the media news. This project exists so that “it pisses me off” could be heard.

The organizers of the event invite everybody to share their reflections in the context of women’s fight for their rights and read out a text within the framework of the performance. For this purpose you need to send authorial or anonymous text to up to and including March 7.

Readings will be followed by a discussion.

It Pisses Me Off documentary performance is taking place for the fourth time. The first reading was performed at Ukrainian Cosmos exhibition, the next two took place within The School of the Lonesome during The School of Kyiv – Kyiv Biennial 2015. Every time the readings involve new participants and texts. The project is not exclusively a scenic practice – everyone who’s willing can participate. It Pisses Me Off is not about hating – the project is a space for articulation of personal and collective concerns.

Admission is free

The performance will be followed by a feminist concert-party The F Sounds:
