Temporary editorial office for memes

The FEMINIST MEME SCHOOL is a temporary editorial office for memes. Memes are edited images that are produced and distributed in social networks. They comment on politics and society. During the FEMINIST MEME SCHOOL, in the framework of ­WIENWOCHE, we will transform our own experiences of discrimination into humorous images for the Internet, and will develop social and political commentaries on sexism and misogyny online. Humorous applications will be drawn from negative experiences, strength created from malaise. The memes will be shared live on the instagram account @feministmemeschool, thereby involving the digital public. The FEMINIST MEME SCHOOL should be a space for deconstructing hegemonic relations. The core elements of the concept are solidarity and empowerment. Every participant is an expert of their own treasure trove of experiences and is invited to share their competences. Memes are ­imperfect. Memes are fun!
