A conversation with Alanna Lockward (author, filmmaker, BE.BOP curator), Federica Bueti (writer and editor, SAVVY Contemporary), Kathy-Ann Tan (academic, Berlin), and Jonas Tinius (anthropologist, CARMAH/HU Berlin).
Intersectional feminism acknowledges and underlines how the structural, global, and subjective entanglements of race, class, ethnicity, religion, and gender affect women’s and trans people’s experiences. How do artistic practices reflect, articulate, or critique this political position? What are the legacies of past and pioneering iterations of Black feminist intersectional thought (Kimberlé Crenshaw) and activism and how do they relate to new generations of artists, activists, academics? What role does art play in the quest for an intersectional feminist political economy? For the third event in the gallery reflection series, we will be discussing the relation of art to intersectional feminism in the context of the exhibition Every Mask I Ever Loved by Nigerian-American artist Wura-Natasha Ogunji.
