During this Art Book Club we’ll be reading texts and watching films that explore intersectional feminism in art. Readings will include a diverse mix of short and long form content. Texts include selections from Black Looks by bell hooks, The Politics of Staring by Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, and articles from the January issue of Artforum on Baroque Technopatriarchy. We’ll also be watching films by feminist filmmakers like Maya Deren, Harry Dodge and Valie Export. The syllabus is open to interpretation so we ask that you come with your ideas, recommendations and feedback, and most importantly an open mind.
