Ewa Alicja Majewska (born 21 July, 1978) is a Polish philosopher. In the 1990s and early 2000s she was involved in anarchist, anti-border, Ecological movement|ecological and women's movements. She is currently affiliated with the Institute of Cultural Inquiry (ICI) Berlin.[1]


Her philosophical work is situated in the perspective of a broadly understood critical theory, stretched between the classical works of the Frankfurt School and the work of Gilles Deleuze and socialist feminism. Her investigations usually concern the issues of freedom and power, and topics such as gender, family, borders and migration, media - areas where people are particularly exposed to power and where there are opportunities for resistance and rebellion. These analyses can be understood as an effort to create tools that direct social imagination towards emancipation.

Her current research is in Hegel's philosophy, focusing on the dialectics and the weak, feminist critical theory and antifascist cultures. Her next book, Feminist Antifascism. Counterpublics of the Common, will be published in 2021.

She volunteered for the Polish IndyMedia and worked in the women's section of the Committee for Assistance and Defense of Repressed Workers. She is also the author of a report on violence against women in the family and intimate relations for the Polish branch of Amnesty International (2005).[2] She is currently active in the "Towards Girls" association and the initiative for freedom in culture Index 73. Until 2014 she is a member of the Women's Agreement of 8 March.

In 2004, together with Aleksandra Polisiewicz, she formed the duo Syreny TV.[3] It produced documentaries from a series of Warsaw demonstrations and the project All Forward to the Extreme Right (2005). This film is a record of conversations revolving around the analogy between Poland of 2005 and the Weimar Republic. It was screened in Weimar at the festival Attention, Polen Kommen! (2005) and at exhibitions in Warsaw and Gdańsk.[4]


In the years 2015-2018 she was a member of the social-democratic Polish political party, Lewica Razem (Left Together), and occupied positions on the party's supervising committee and national council. In the parliamentary elections in 2015, she ran for the Sejm in the Warsaw district from 26th place on the Total List. [5][dead link]As part of the party, she participated in the work of the statutory commission, and co-created the 'Together for Culture' programme. In May 2016, she was elected to the party's national audit committee and in June 2017 to the national council.[6] Since the end of 2018 she is no longer a party member.
