These streets. Our streets. Is a powerful, empowering exhibition that counteracts the normalization of female-unfriendly streets. Vulnerable is opposed to a normative masculinity. Our public spaces, like many other spaces in our society, are dominated by a toxic and socially constructed idea of the man.The Beursstation is one of the places where this normative masculinity asserts its power. This central, public space is a symbol of memories and experiences of the violence that can cause toxic masculinity.
Johanna Couvée is a cultural organizer in Brussels, who was a member of the artistic think tank of Zinnema's I Have A Dream theme a long time ago. This time she was recruited by Zinnema as the fifth curator at the Beurs pre-metro station. The purpose of this exhibition is to reclaim public space on one’s own terms.
