This year’s edition of the MOVE festival organised since 2017 at Centre Pompidou in Paris, and presented for the first time in Prague, explores the theme of intimacy and its exhibition. In the late 1960s, based on the principle that the personal is political, female artists often used their own private lives in their work, notably through the mediums of video and photography: their domestic interiors, their own bodies, their romantic relationships and their sexuality. Intimacy was downplayed in patriarchal society, relegated to the domain of private practices, which were considered to be the polar opposite of universal and fundamental subjects. Feminist theories at the time viewed the disclosure of women’s everyday experience as a means of exposing the mechanisms of domination and developing a form of collective consciousness. In this respect, intimacy prompts a consideration of the minority.
