‘Shape & Situate: Posters Of Inspirational Women in Europe’ is a zine made up of posters made by artists and DIY creative people. 

The posters feature artwork and information on an inspirational or radical European women of the poster maker’s choosing. The aim has been to highlight the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past and the present through a cultural articulation of these women’s lives.a
 
Born as a result of an appreciation of radical poster projects from the USA, such as Celebrate People’s History and Inspired Agitators, the zine provides a European perspective of women who have acted in inspirational ways, providing knowledge on - and recognising and celebrating - these radical women’s lives and actions. Women who have acted as organisers, activists, pioneers, educators, or role models, from a wide range of disciplines.

 


  There’s no life that does not contribute to our collective history, yet conventional history books show us that it’s rare for women’s lives to be documented as readily as men’s, especially women in more underground, domestic, or radical spheres. I hate to think that in years to come it’ll only be the ‘elite’ people on the top of the pile who’re remembered, creating a void and mass forgetting of the great work and lives of so many people within our social, cultural and political makeup, communities, and lives. Women such as those who are collected in the zine (and many, many more besides) are important to our collective history, women who have helped shape and situate our lives whether we know it or not. 
I wanted to try and make a zine to honour and celebrate and inform others on some of these women. The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire in the present, and to visually bring women’s social and political history to life and into view.
 
It is important to consider and question just who traditional/hegemonic history ‘remembers’, whom it suppresses, and why this may be. And important too to counter such narrow practice with culturally resistive, artistic and creative, grassroots memorial projects of our own, such as this one
