In 1972 Ewa Partum founded the independent Galeria Adres (1972-1977) in Łódź, Poland. The gallery fostered international artistic exchange, promoted conceptual art and mail art. It was also a place for the realisation of individual artistic projects by Ewa Partum. In 1974, the artist's first feminist action 'Change' was performed in the gallery. It dealt with the subject of discrimination against women in the social world and in the world of art. This project was developed in later years in the form of the 'Emphatic Portraits – My Problem is a Problem of a Woman' (1974/78) and the performance 'Change: My Problem is a Problem of a Woman' (1979). To stimulate the international exchange of ideas and to counter the political isolation related to the geopolitical situation of the time, the Adres Gallery organized in 1977 the 1st International Film Festival 'Film as Idea, Film as Film, Film as Art'. Scripts for short films, interventions and performances, projects and instructions were sent to the festival.
