As structural violence acts insidiously, the brutality it enacts melds into quotidian banality. Structural violence does not leave a physical bruise like physical violence, yet the ways in which it coerces its subjects demands a return to discussing power relations—ways now to talk about power. The artists in the exhibition “Performing Society: The Violence of Gender”  articulate and make traces of this brutality so often obscured and made invisible. Following the opening of “The Violence of Gender” at Tai Kwun Contemporary, we invite you to join us for an artist-sharing session along with exhibition curator Susanne Pfeffer.

The conversation will be conducted primarily in English with simultaneous translation to Cantonese available. No photography or video recording is permitted during the sharing session.
