Femkanje is a podcast, art and media project dedicated to contemporary arts and culture in Serbia, ex-Yugoslavian region and Europe. It was initiated in Belgrade, in 2013 by two artists Bojana S. Knežević and Katarina Petrović. Always looking for new ways to engage with the public, we are currently publishing a monthly podcast (on serbian language), taking part in public discussions and making audio installations.

Background

Dissatisfied with insufficient and inadequate media space available for arts and culture in Serbia, Femkanje set out to present and promote primarily female authors, focusing on young, independent artists from both Serbia and ex-Yugoslavian region. Without restrictions and outside of the discriminatory and over-aestheticized visual media communication, the show came to be a free dialogue zone, a space for interventions and new connections.

The first series of Femkanje radio show piloted on 5th of March 2013 on an independent internet radio NOFM. In live broadcasts, every Wednesday at 6pm, we talked with more then 70 independent authors, both prominent and less known, coming from many different areas including: visual arts, music and sound art, drama arts, applied arts, activism, education and science. Total of 64 shows was broadcasted until June 2014 and the realization was partially supported by Mirror, a Program of Support of Young Women’s Activism, Reconstruction Women’s Fund from Belgrade.

After a year long brake, Femkanje started the 2nd series of shows in September 2015, now running as an independent platform publishing podcasts twice a month. In 16 shows that were realized until June 2016, we talked with artists and organizations from ex-Yugoslavian region working nationally and internationally – particularly in Holland. We also recorded a protest in the name of the scheduled but cancelled, re-opening of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade.

Currently, and in the third series, we are broadening our focus to include our english-speaking colleagues and so create visibility not only for artists and organizations from ex-Yu region but also make visible other European cultural workers which are in one way or another linked to the Balkans. The shows are realized in Serbian (Serbo-Croatian) language with occasional interviews in english and are now published once a month.
