Today, non-belonging determines the feeling of uncanniness. One’s disorientation, uncertainty and ‘disconnected status’ is a fragile sense of position in the world; a crisis of self.
What we are bringing in to question at this exhibition is the status of the female and her non-belonging in the retrograding and unapologetic political climate, currently experienced all over the world.
After a summer of Brexit, followed by the winter of the US elections. Ispired and in memory of respected and beloved John Berger::
We are gathering 12 female artists from all over the world, each facing their own uncanny, to make a cultural, social, political or personal statement. We are gathering artists standing up for their views and opinions, strong and fearless intellectuals; artists who need and want change.

☾RAZZMATAZZ is a platform for artists coming from varied backgrounds and disciplines to perform live action relating to their own practice. It is a sequence of exhibitions/ happenings which take place in different locations twice a year, during October and March. Each sequel has its own subject matter, questions and manifestations, where through open call or invitation a collective of artists is created that reflect on the matter. The series was created in October 2015 by established German artist Dagmar I. Glausnitzer- Smith and emerging duo collective Panicattack, because of the urge to experiment and the lack of performance art platforms for young, up and coming artists.
