Workshop: !Women's Questions? a facilitated discussion by ground-up initiative Crit Talk

!Women's Questions? (1965) was a list of handwritten questions that artist and educator Jef Geys made for, and with, the students he taught. For Geys, his artistic life was often integrated with his work—instead of teaching the history of classical art, Geys preferred to engage his students in discussions about the position of women in society. Taking inspiration from !Women’s Questions?, this collaboration with Crit Talk is a facilitated discussion around issues related to women in contemporary Singapore. It hopes to provide a safe and critical space for participants to share their perspectives, personal encounters or observations on feminism and gender identity, and to debate and create new “Women’s Questions” that take on relevance today.

Developed for participants aged 13 and above.

Venue: The Seminar Room, Block 43 Malan Road, Singapore 109443

Crit Talk (Singapore) provides open, critical, and participative spaces for young Singaporeans to discuss their unique experiences and topics participants feel important to address but are taboo or too controversial for a mainstream setting. Crit Talk is the brainchild of Sya Taha and Saiful Anuar. Sya writes about the media representation of Muslim women through race, disability and other intersectionalities, and is currently pursuing her PhD in National University of Singapore, while Saiful is a consultant on diversity and inclusion issues, and conducts design-thinking training.

This is a public programme of the exhibition Jef Geys. Quadra Medicinale Singapore.
