Sara Ahmed presents a lecture on Feminist Killjoys (And Other Willful Subjects) with a response, which situates this discussion particularly within contemporary art arenas.
23rd/ 24th January Activism and Practice
We would like to invite you to the second event in a series of workshops and lectures, Practising Feminism, which considers questions of feminist art practice; what the role of feminism is in contemporary art practice, how we relate to feminist genealogies, critiques, methods and theory as practising artists, writers and critics, how might we resituate knowledge as feminist, and how feminist practices and methodologies have and continue to influence contemporary art practices.
The 2nd day of the Practising Feminism series will look at practices in relation to feminism and activism and will consider how feminist strategies of protest are being deployed in contemporary political events including embodied protest. Some of the questions to be addressed include; Who are these practices speaking for and to? What is their role within a wider context of activism? Are they symbolic or actual agents of change? What can we learn from a feminist critique of the relationship between art and politics?
