Feminist Manifestoes

Monday, December 3, 6:30-8:30pm
Wollman Hall, B500, Eugene Lang College, 65 West 11th Street

Manifestos have been historically used by feminist activists, artists, and writers to boldly state their ideas and demands. As part of the year-long seminar cycle “Freedom of Speech: Curriculum for Studies into Darkness” presented by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, this program proposes speech as a collective act of re-appropriation. It calls for a network of resistance and transformation through the enactment of a series of documents written by women in different corners of the world during different moments in time This event explores the ways in which written statements challenge cultural production, food distribution, knowledge creation, land ownership and other systems of oppression that the patriarchy, still today, refuses to acknowledge.

Participants:
Becca Albee, visual artist and musician
Chiara Bottici, Associate Professor of Philosophy, New School for Social Research
Silvia Federici, philosopher, scholar, writer and activist from the radical autonomist Marxist tradition
A.L. Steiner, visual artist, teacher, collaborator and co-founder of Ridykeulous and Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.)
