Jo Bannon and Maddy Costa interrogate the modern feminist experience of personal, psychological and political penetration.


Jo Bannon and Maddy Costa delve into questions and provocations from from the origins of Jo Bannon's latest project We Are Fucked. They will discuss what it means to be a heterosexual woman, and consider Jo’s experiences as a disabled person, as the lens through which she looks from within in a patriarchal society. How do these concerns sit within our currently changing political climate: living with a Tory government; Brexit; looking at the changes to reproduction rights that are happening in America and lots of other places?

Gradually the project has become about this idea of relentless penetration; on a personal, bodily and intimate level but also on a wider political level. Are we equally penetrated by our Facebook feed as we are by a dubious sexual encounter? We’re living in an age of being so permeable and so receptive to our exterior context and environment that it’s like a relentless onslaught into our personal identities. So it has moved into a bigger question of what penetrates us socially, personally and politically.
