The art world is dominated by men.
The art institutions are ruled by men.
We are still talking about male geniuses.
These structures must be challenged.
We need to create more opportunities for female/queer artists,
and by refusing to comply with the existing power structures and creating this separatist platform we believe we are taking
a step in the right direction.
The sexualization of girls and the infantilization of adult women is something that we have to deal with in today’s society, and ‘baby’ is a term of endearment that by all means is infantilizing of women.
We are reclaiming it as a feminist word.
