As part of our program for the 8th of March this year, we are organizing a series of events around the theme of "bodies". In these events, we will discuss bodies and our relationships with our own bodies through the lens of feminist and queer approaches to various topics, including "body affirmation movements", fashion, sexuality, art, performance, space, city, sexual orientation and gender identity.
