“Woman” is a social and art project for women. It consists of a book “Woman”, exhibition “In her hands” that shows journals of the book characters and their photos, and workshops for women.

The book “Woman” has nine chapters-conversations with women of all ages, with different worldviews, living in different places in Poland. It is a story about a woman in the modern world. The book is accompanied by the exhibition “In her hands”, where you can view the photographs of the characters of the book, read their journals and write something in yourself.

The Author

Eta Kobi, author of the book and the exhibition, is 46 years old, lives in Warsaw and has been conducting development and educational activities for many years. She is a philologist and trainer of social skills as well as a writer and a photographer by passion. In 2017, she underwent hysterectomy surgery, which became an impulse to write a book and launch a project for women.

By 1962, two of the silver screen’s great leading ladies, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, were has-beens. The women – both famed for playing strong independent characters, both with difficult personal lives and both a long way past 40 – had been replaced by a new breed of perky blonde stars. Then they got an unexpected opportunity: playing opposite each other in what was to become a cult classic, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

It says a great deal about how little the opportunities for female actors have changed in 50 years. On their roles in this backlot two-hander like starving women who have not glimpsed meat for years. Because they have so much fun with the roles, we have fun, too: it is little more than a rehash of old Hollywood gossip, buying unquestioningly into the idea that strong, successful women are all bitches at heart.

After forty years of living together do we know everything about our partner? It is not even about some hidden secrets, but about a never-ending desires, aspirations or preferences. For the first time Grażyna and Marian stay in a luxury hotel to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their marriage totally different, as they did before. However, they do not know the practical meaning of the word “luxury”, which causes even problem of getting into the room or aversion to the exotic – as per their taste – menu in the local restaurant. It would seem this is a standard situation of a marriage from countryside. The weekend would have been a more miserable, when a man came out under the bed (a newly elected minister who is in a very awkward situation), and the receptionist who supposes an intercourse among of these three people to spice up their boring married life. The Prime Minister has the minister up, but the minister can not reveal himself for fear of scandal (in the opinion of the public, because he is known as a morally incorruptible man). From that point the couple begins to rebuild their lives (in erotic way as well). Danny, the concierge – Daniel, but his colleagues call him so – would most likely turn this not-exist-triangle into an-exist-quadrangle. Who and how will come out of this situation, when for each side the situation starts to be uncomfortable?
