ANOHNI, whose 2016 Hopelessness was one of the most compelling and beautiful albums protesting political corruption in years, has long worked on a fluid project known as “Future Feminism.” Realized in the past as a manifesto, art shows, and performances, ANOHNI is now bringing the Future Feminism project to Denmark this month as a sort of festival.

Currently the Artist-in-Residence at Aarhus, Denmark, ANOHNI is filling her month-long stay with exhibitions and talks which include performance art workshops with co-creator Kembra Pfahler, panels on deconstructing “male-centric” language and “male spiritual supremacy,” a presentation on domestic violence in Denmark featuring a self-defense workshop and more.

The project sounds similar to the 13-day Future Feminist performance that ANOHNI and several other feminist artists held in New York City at the Hole gallery in 2014. The Future Feminist collective are a group of feminist, woman-identified artists who are “preoccupied with the future,” in particular climate change and protecting the Earth (something ANOHNI has been especially interested in her entire career as a musician.)

“The directives of FUTURE FEMINISM are a provocation that, at their core, call for the reconstitution of a feminine collective consciousness,” reads the site for the project. “Which if radically empowered, might be strong enough to reorganize our behaviors as a species and save what remains of our world.”

If you can see ANOHNI live you absolutely must. I have never seen a solo artist share more of what was inside of them with an audience before, and all while standing mostly still in robes. The video artists ANOHNI pairs up with too are just...... awe. some.
