Feminist Meme School

Caren Miesenberger launched the Feminist Meme School in 2018 as a workshop in the Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs programme. At the invitation of Pop-Hayat curator Yeşim Duman, the journalist formed a temporary meme editorial team with the participants, together turning their own experiences of discrimination into comical but critical images to share online, turning positives into negatives. While the festival ended, the Feminist Meme School’s Instagram didn’t stop. Miesenberger expanded her work with further workshops and, obviously, online. This year, she’ll supply Pop-Kultur’s Instagram account with pics to tackle toxic masculinity.
