An important feminist practice for k.ö.k is to actively support existing structures and activities at the Women’s Center in Tensta-Hjulsta, whose daily routines enable community and solidarity between women with different living conditions and experiences. k.ö.k supports the structure of the women’s centre through activities and economcially through k.ö.k access to cultural funding that feeds the infrastructure of the centre.
Three of k.ö.k’s members are responsible for the adminstration: Petra Bauer, Jenny Richards and Muna Alyaqoobi. One k.ö.k member Muna Alyaqoobi is paid to work with k.ö.k and the Women’s Centre 40 hours a month.
k.ö.k is defined by its context and develops its work according to the needs and desires that exist within k.ö.k and the Women’s Center in Tensta-Hjulsta.
In close collaboration with the Women’s Center in Tensta-Hjulsta – a self-organised meeting place for women with diverse backgrounds, we challenge hierarchical and neo-liberal ideas in organising, knowledge production and artistic practice. k.ö.k emphasises and practises mutual and slow learning.
k.ö.k and the Women’s Center in Tensta-Hjulsta builds alliances and connections by inviting local and international organisations and individuals who work with feminist organising.
Whilst k.ö.k organises under the word women it is welcome to trans and non-binary people.
k.ö.k meet regularly to eat together, watch films, discuss, organise, read, listen, share and explore.
k.ö.k was formed in 2017. The Women’s Centre Tentsa/Hjulsta was founded in 1997.
