Languages of publication
Postcolonialism in Poland – a feminist proposition In this article I try to introduce the feminist postcolonial theory in the analysis of several recent texts and projects which have been discussed in Poland and where the postcolonial, situated knowledge can be observed as one allowing the analysis of Polish peasantry, as an important element of the feminist art criticism or as a way of discussing Poland as semi-peripheric in its relation to “the West”. I discuss the debates over the music project R.U.T.A. and theater piece In the name of Jakub S., I also argue, that the application of postcolonial theory could transform the exhibition Gender Check into a genuinely feminist project. Postcolonialism is discussed here as theory directly indebted in the legacy of Karl Marx, theorist which seems irreplaceable in the contemporary cultural studies. The arguments for the last thesis is supported with references to some already historical materialist and decolonial feminist theories.
