The Shawl as a Cultural Signifier
June 1 - June 13
An international exhibition examining how scarves were worn on their way from a form of traditional customs to high fashion will take place in Museum of Vojvodina. The purpose of the exhibition is to question stereotypical attributions, separations and fears in mutual life in a global, migration-marked society and to problematize significant social issues, such as identity, borders, migration and retraditionalization. The exhibition setting enables the comparison between different cultures and encourages insights into one’s multicultural tradition by generating prejudice-free opinions, nurturing cultural diversity, mutual acceptance and tolerance.
The project comprises several different activities with the same thematic focus. The “Shawl as a Cultural Signifier” exhibition, created by six curators, is the chief event. The exhibition will also encompass the accompanying programs with workshops, screenings of documentaries and experimental films, and the panels addressing the theme of wearing scarves through different points of view: historical, social, political, as a segment of everyday routines.
Venue: Lower gallery of the Museum of Vojvodina in 37 Dunavska Street
