Abstract or Description

A two-day research symposium considering the resonance of feminist art, thinking and collectivity in contemporary life. Riffing on Amelia Jones’ concept of ‘queer feminist durationality,’ it explores feminist legacies, potentials and pitfalls to examine how tactics and strategies from earlier movements and projects are being re-examined and redeployed today. Concerned with the dangers of romanticising earlier struggles and succumbing to Left melancholy, the symposium looks at how feminisms in art and curating contribute to a constellation of cultural production. Such speculations open up to the differences in intention and reception across place, time and context.

Contributions range from talks and conversations to film screenings, music, and a rewriting workshop.

With contributions from Nella Aarne, Kajsa Dahlberg, Lisa Busby, Giulia Damiani, Dimitra Gkitsa, Claire Fontaine, Melissa Gordon, Catherine Grant, Laura Guy, Shama Khanna, Nina Power, Helena Reckitt, Emily Rosamond, Louse Shelley, Cristina Thorstenberg Ribas, Amy Tobin, Rehana Zaman.
