Over three sessions, participants will undertake a series of exercises led by artist Alex Martinis Roe that expand on proposals generated in her exhibition at The Showroom To Become Two to develop further propositions for new feminist political practices. These workshops will culminate in a public event where participants will enact their collective proposals.
The workshops would suit those who have an interest in collective political practices and/or feminism but an extensive knowledge of feminist history or theory is not necessary to participate. Participants must be able to contribute to all three workshops and the final event, as well as some discussions and correspondence with the artist in the first two weeks of May.
Registration for this workshop has now closed.
This event accompanies the exhibition Alex Martinis Roe: To Become Two.
