In October 2019 Temporary Gallery hosted a meeting of our monthly reading group, this time with Nina Power as a guest. The event accompanied a lecture of Nina Power at the AICA conference in Cologne (AICA invited Power on our recommendation). Our intention was to discuss two publications by Power: the text „From the one to the many“, published in Texte zur Kunst in 2017 and her book „One Dimensional Woman“ from 2009 as well as to hear about her upcoming book dedicated to the theme of masculinity. At that time we were not fully aware of all controversies surrounding our guest and we didn’t have clarity concerning her ideological position. In such circumstances we should have withdrawn from the event.
We remain true to our principles such as anti-fascist stance, respect for feelings and rights of minorities and rejection of any kind of right-wing content in our space.
