“Us and Them” a collective art project
Us and Them was a collaborative art project shaped by Evi Tselika and the Center for Gender Equality and History. The following members took part in the project: Paraskevi Ioannidou, Irene Kyritsi, Thekla Kyritsi, Andri Kyprianou, Andria Neophytou, Elena Neophytou, Chrystalla Panayiotou and Yiota Panayiotou. Us and Them brought into focus social patterns of women mobilisation and acts of protest by exploring the uncharted archive of the oldest still running women’s civic organisation, Pancyprian Federation of Women’s Organisations (POGO). The art work Us and them was presented at the international Exhibition Neurosis-Neme Contemporary Arts, Limassol November 2016. The contribution to the exhibition included a collectively made banner composed of archival photographs related to female labour and mobilization (from the POGO and Pancyprian Federation of Labour archives) together with an audio component from the Women Walk Home march in 1975.
