About

Artists Aliza Shvarts and Emma Sulkowicz will present “Consent/Dissent,” a talk about permission and the preservation of agency in the context of feminist discourse, as well as historical positions of power and disempowerment. The roundtable discussion will explore the relationship between the political traditions of consent and its opposite, dissent, which marks the capacity to resist and refuse, asking: How might consent and dissent inform a feminist capacity to act? This event will refer to readings that will be made available by the presenters beforehand.
