Description:

FemLink started out in 2006 in order to recognize a female video artist from each country who would produce a two-minute film around a central them. In 2006 the theme was fragility, and then the artists combined each of the videos into one in order to create a video collage. Visitors interested in viewing the first video can use the link entitled "The Video-Collage Fragility", which is accessible after clicking anywhere on the homepage. The video-collages from 2007-2009 are also available for viewing on the same page as "Fragility". A brief description of the theme is given, as well as biographies of the artists who contributed a video to the year's collage. The theme for 2007 was "Resistance", and in 2008 it was " Preoccupation". Interestingly, the theme for 2009 was "Male," and for the first time, male artists were invited to contribute a short video on a woman artist from his country. The list of "Screenings and Exhibitions", accessible on the left side of the page, lists an impressive number of countries that have hosted the exhibition since 2006, including Lithuania, Uruguay, Lebanon, and the Palestinian Territories.
