Sisters of Jam was founded in 2008 by artists Moa and Mikaela Krestesen. They work with interdisciplinary artistic research based projects using multiple media – photography, video, drawing, installation and text – in an ongoing investigation of community, sisterhood, historiography and continuity.
They aim to create a feminist dialogue over generations and geographies, that is both virtual and allegorical; that reaches backwards and forwards and at the same time tells us something new. Sisters of Jam look back in feminist history and re actualize the deeds, thoughts and aspirations of earlier generations of sisters and female colleagues, like adding to a patchwork.
Using collaborative work methods they wish to overcome boundaries of genres and become wider, greater and stronger.
