Re-Materialising Feminism
In partnership with The Showroom and the ICA


Organised by Alice Brooke, Rosza Farkas and Giulia Smith


Part One: The Showroom
6-8 June 2014

Preview 6 June, 6–9pm
Saturday 7 June & Sunday 8 June, 11.30am-5.30pm


Part Two: ICA Theatre
20-21 June 2014


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. A publication documenting the project will be published by Arcadia Missa publications later in 2014.


The first part of the project, taking place at The Showroom, will feature a display of video works from the Cinenova archive, and emerging feminist artists. This will be accompanied by a conference that brings together a range of key voices, with the aim of linking historical materialist theories and feminist practices, providing a platform for an intergenerational conversation.


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 Two will take place at the ICA - please see the ICA website for details.
