Report: All I Want for Christmas Is the Fall of Patriarchy

See what went down at a Prague art show that tried to take down patriarchy, one artwork at a time.

Imagine a world without expectations based on your gender. Without your value being based on your skin color or your genitals, or even how “attractive” you are. Without one race trying to seize all the power and suppress anyone else. Without any gay-, trans-, or queerphobia. Without wage gap. Without marginalized groups being denied access to education, work places, or basic needs.

That’s exactly what Natalie Kollega’s and (Kink’s editor-in-chief) Anna Wim’s wished for this Christmas, and turned into the main thought behind their 1-day art show “All I Want for Christmas Is the Fall of Patriarchy”, held in Prague on December 21. Bringing together 16 international artists, they challenged perhaps the most intricate system of control of all times, using art to channel the anger and fears it brings onto anyone that is not a cis, white, straight, upper-class male.

And how did it go? Scroll down to see a couple of photos from the oh-so-feminist event, and visit the Facebook event page to see even more!
