Exhibition at SKOK

Every semester, the Centre for Women's and Gender Research (SKOK), invites artists to exhibit their work in the seminar room at Ida Bloms house. This semester SKOK features work by Nadzeya Husakouskaya, SKOK PhD candidate, researcher and photographer from Belarus.
Colour of Protest is an art exploration into strategies of resistance, representation and belonging in post-Apartheid South Africa and post-Soviet Belarus. As a point of departure for critical reflection, Nadzeya Husakouskaya, takes their experience of witnessing Women's Marches against police brutality in Marikana, the mining area in North West, South Africa, in September 2012.

A student's perspective on SKOKs Master-relay

I think it is very interesting that the participants at the event came from different academic backgrounds and had so very different questions and research objectives.
