Doing well, Don't worry; Short tales of women's work and mobility.
Towards a Women’s museum in the Middle East
Cairo, Amman, Beirut and Århus 2017
The outset for the project was to create a travelling exhibition about women’s work, relationship and mobility with the purpose to train and establish a network of younger women in the field of museology, material culture and gender, as well as setting up the first gender focused travelling exhibition in Cairo, Amman and Beirut.
A series of bespoke made light boxes, suspended frames and suitcases is clustered throughout the gallery and unfold 20 women's stories through words, images and everyday objects. All display cases are designed as a generic set suitable to be recycled for future exhibitions and easy to demount, pack and transport.
The project was structured around a series of workshops and is a first step towards establishing women’s museum in the Middle East. Galmstrup Ltd. supported the project with talks on museum design and designed the display cases.
