Toxic masculinity, toxic ignorance, toxic anger… But can feminism also be toxic? Toxic to whom and in what circumstances? At the end of January, D’EST will travel to Tallinn and – together with a wide range of participants from art, activism and culture – interconnect the themes of feminism, environmental concerns and Eastern Europe in order to discuss toxicity in our increasingly polluted world. Estonia has one of the lowest levels of environmental awareness in Europe (Eurobarameeter 2017). What roles do gender, the communication context, and geopolitics play in this?
