Artdom Part 2 is a collaboration between female artists in Norway and Pakistan, around the theme of feminism.
Concidering Norways large Pakistani population, mainly immigrated in the 1970’s, both countries share a deep connection. Today Norway is involved in different fields in Pakistan such as tele communication, energy and textile. Pakistan was one of the first main partners for Norwegian aid. In UN’s Gender Inequality Index Pakistan ends up in a low placement. Since 2012 Norway has been supporting UN Women, who works towards a better situation for women in Pakistan both economically and in other fields. Alongside many positive aspects considering integration and the situation for the Pakistani population in Norway, female Pakistani networks and communities have been formed partly as a result of Pakistani women often facing problems of isolation and exclusion, both from the Norwegian and Pakistani community.
