’Re-framing my body II: countering stereotyped portrayal of women’ is a project that was planned to take place between September 2021 and March 2022 online and in Kyiv, Ukraine. It was interrupted by the aggressive attack by Russia on Ukrainian territory on February 24, 2021. The project is funded by the Creative Force program of the Swedish Institute and a collaboration between Art Travel and Lava-Dansproduktion. The project started off with online lectures for women artists by Kateryna Radchenko, Hanna Wildow and Sybrig Dokter. From looking at and analyzing of how women are portrayed in media and the arts, there were discussions on which the participants reflected artistically. This material was used to create a video that will be available online shortly.
