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.

Based on our individual practices and experiences, stories are gathered and woven together about the collective and zesterhood as a political and artistic method. The workshop is part of the ongoing project 21st Century Zesterhood with designduo Bastion and curator Karolina Pahlén. Read more!

Proud to be part of the program alongside of the exhibition "56 Artillery Lane" at Raven Row galley, London. For this exhibition ‘home’ is imagined as a space for social, sexual and political agency, and the 'domestic’ as a stage on which kinship and self are formed and transformed through acts of love, cruelty and indifference. Sisters of Jam will participate in the event "A Piece of Land: Alternative communities and living" presenting our project Kate Millett Farm and a screening of our video "It takes a million years to be a woman".
