Centrala Online – Performative Artist Talk: Iwona Demko



Iwona obtained her diploma in 2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow at the Sculpture Department. Since 2008 she has worked at the Alma Mater. In 2012 she defended her PhD based on her dissertation ‘’Vaginatism” and the sculpture ‘’The Chapel of Vagina”. In 2016 she received her post-doctoral degree based on a piece originating from her friendship with two women working as sex workers and an exhibition they created together. Against the warnings coming from her own artistic and academic circles she deliberately produces work that may be classified as feminist art. Iwona has curated a few feminist exhibitions. Recently immersed in her research on the history of women’s’ struggle for the right to study at Krakow’s Academy. Iwona has also been taking active part in all recent demonstrations and encouraging others to do so.
