DESCRIPTION

Re-Materialising Feminism is a project concerned with curating an intergenerational range of artistic and theoretical feminist practices. The project begins as a conference/series of events, across The Showroom and the ICA.

Part One at The Showroom is concerned with understanding key conversations within materialist feminist critique, namely the relationship between labour and gender, and the terms ‘reproduction’ and ‘abolition’. These terms will be unpacked and examined alongside notions of radical (female) subjectivities, and queer theory. Where does resistance to reproduction occur, in particular within the formation of affect? Can embodiments of failure and/or self-authoring operate as refusal of the reproductive qualities of patriarchy?

Part II of the project at the ICA comprises of a series of text-based interventions, performances, screenings and onstage conversations that reconsider older feminist strategies of representation in light of a resurgence of interest in feminism in culture and the mass media. The focus is on mapping the complex, and at times ambiguous, demands brought about by a considerable range of artistic and theoretical practices that expose the exploitation of the female subject – and even of feminism itself.
