Exhibition opening at the Women and Memory Forum in Giza, Egypt

May 1, 2017

Tomorrow on 2nd May the exhibition “Doing Well, Don’t Worry” is opened at the Women and Memory Forum in Giza, Egypt.

This exhibition introduces glimpses into the lives of several women – women, who have worked and moved as doctors, maids, actresses, students, accountants, filmmakers, embroiderers, teachers, tour guides, artists, and as mothers, daughters, mentors and friends. They live in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Denmark, yet their lives invite us to travel across many more spaces, peoples, and times, and inspire us to rethink familiar meanings and assumptions about women, mobility and work.

This exhibition is the result of collaboration between the Women and Memory Forum (EG), Women’s Museum in Denmark (DK), Danish-Egyptian Dialogue Institute (EG/DK), Anthropology Unit and the Cynthia Nelson Institute from the American University in Cairo (EG), the Tiraz Centre (JO) and the Knowledge Workshop (LE). It could, however, not have been done without the help from students and young professionals in the fields of social sciences, architecture, museums and graphic design who lent their time and passion to the project.
