Abstract or Description

A panel talk among other invited guests, Stella Nyanzi (Scholar and Human Rights Activist); Sria Chatterjee (Editor, British Art Studies) and Ariane Sutthavong (Curator). In this talk I spoke about ongoing and active campaigns, throughout the global pandemic, for equal reproductive rights in Northern Ireland, a crisis that could be historically contextualised by a number of artists’ and independent films over the past four decades.

Item Type:

Conference or Workshop Item (Talk)

Additional Information:

I propose that some of the films I’ll talk about today present a historical chorus of voices in a vastly important if under-resourced archive of audio-visual material that testifies to a citizenry living outside or beyond the protection of a state apparatus, providing us as viewers textured and complex examples of feminist, socialist thinking, and of solidarity, autonomy, pragmatism and resilience in action.'
