Radical Thinkers: The Art, Sex and Politics of Feminism

source: Tate     2015年3月27日
This panel discussion addresses the legacy of feminist art and theory and its enduring relevance to contemporary struggles. The event is chaired by artist Sonia Boyce and speakers include Lynne Segal, author of 'Straight Sex', and Professor Griselda Pollock.

Forty years ago, feminist thinkers and artists interrogated the role of women as workers and producers and the representation of women in art. What happened to the new worlds of possibility promised by the women¹s liberation and second wave feminist movements of the twentieth century?

Lynne Segal is Anniversary Professor of Psychology and Gender Studies in the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College. Her many books include Out of Time: The Pleasures and Perils of Ageing and Straight Sex: Rethinking the Politics of Pleasure. She co-wrote Beyond the Fragments: Feminism and the Making of Socialism with Sheila Rowbotham and Hilary Wainwright.

Griselda Pollock is Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art and Director of the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory and History at the University of Leeds, and is known for her consistent exploration of feminist theory and cultural analysis.
