SALT Symposium
Saturday 22 November
10AM – 6PM

As part of the ongoing cyberfeminism series NEWGenNOW, The White Building presents SALT Symposium.

In a climate where traditional modes of articulating refusal through physical action become criminalised or dangerous, language, and furthermore what can be done with it, becomes the only potent weapon left. This symposium will look to errors or interruptions in communication that offer space for disruption and subsequently open up new ways to disobey through glossolalia: to speak in tongues, to be incomprehensible, and to confuse.
Taking the form of the manifesto as a starting point, this refusal to accept what is given, and to look for alternatives or space for transformation between the lines, is what characterises the speakers and their subject matter: those who attempt to put into circulation performative gestures of disobedience as models for experimental protest.



Mali D. Collins is a black poet and writer from the rural Midwest America. Currently residing in New York City, she writes about black contemporary art and the intersections of feminism and media. She is an emerging scholar hoping to return to academia to research intersections of radical blackness and American pop culture.

Guilia Damiani’s project Napoli in the Unmapped Practice of Le Nemesiache: A Feminist Gazetteer gives voice to the untold story of a feminist collective that operated in the 70s and 80s in Napoli, Le Nemesiache, unveiling its relevance for today through essays, transcriptions from films and performances as well as extracts from original and unpublished texts.

Laura Guy is a Lecturer in Critical Studies for Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London and has contributed as a curator to programmes at TATE Liverpool; International Project Space, Birmingham; Archive, Berlin and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London. She is currently undertaking funded doctoral research at Manchester School of Art under the working title ‘Becoming a Subject of History: Rereading manifesto forms as feminist practice’.

Catherine Grant explores the re-enactment of histories of feminism in contemporary art. She has recently co-edited a special issue of Art History on “Creative Writing and Art History” (April 2011) and a collection of essays on girlhood in contemporary art entitled Girls! Girls! Girls! in contemporary art (2011). An essay on being a ‘fan of feminism’ has been published in the Oxford Art Journal (June 2011).

Two Performances: Andrea Fraser and Alex Martinis Roe

Dutch premiere of Men on the Line: Men Committed to Feminism, KPFK, 1972 by Andrea Fraser, Tues 2 Dec 2014, 20:00 hrs, De Balie, Amsterdam and Their desire rang through the halls and into the tower by Alex Martinis Roe alongside a screening, Wed 3 Dec 2014, 20:00 hrs, Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory,

Men on the Line: Men Committed to Feminism, KPFK, 1972 (2012) is a work developed by artist Andrea Fraser based on a 1972 live radio broadcast of a dialogue between several men discussing the importance of feminist struggle to men, how they respond or fail to respond to their female counterparts, and the anxieties and struggles that arise. Fraser transcribed and edited the broadcast and performs as all four participants, reenacting in her own performance the mens’ difficulty in moving outside the bounds of their gender and experiencing empathy for the feminist cause.

The Amsterdam presentation on Tues 2 Dec 2014 at 20:00 hrs of Men on the Line is co-produced by Casco and If I Can't Dance. It is hosted by De Balie, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10, Amsterdam.

Their desire rang through the halls and into the tower (2014) is a spoken performance by artist Alex Martinis Roe. The artist focuses on the intertwining histories of Anna Maria van Schurman, the first female university student in Europe, who attended Utrecht University in the seventeenth century, and the development of the Netherlands Research School of Women's Studies at that same university. Based on oral histories and textual research by Martinis Roe, members of the Graduate Gender Programme of Utrecht University collectively edited the script and will perform a group political diagram composed of layered and partial accounts of this trans-historical community.

The evening begins at Casco in Utrecht on Wed 3 Dec 2014 at 20:00 hrs. Along with the performance there will be a screening of an earlier work in the series of Martinis Roe’s research into feminist genealogies entitled A story from Circolo della rosa (2014) and a brief introduction by the artist. While the event is free, r.s.v.p. is required to reserve your place; please send an e-mail to ying@cascoprojects.org.

The work is commissioned by Casco and is also a collaboration with the Graduate Gender Programme of Utrecht University and co-presented with If I Can't Dance, Amsterdam. It is co-funded by Einstein Foundation Berlin and realized with the support of the Graduate School for the Arts and Sciences at the Berlin University of the Arts and the Samstag Program.

On view at Casco: Two solo exhibitions: The Common Sense, Phase 1 by Melanie Gilligan and In the Year of the Quiet Sun by The Otolith Group until 25 Jan 2014.

Mafalda Santos:
Organizational schemes, networks, interconnection and principles of scale and composition are determinant in Mafalda’s work. Expanded drawings on murals or ground works cull their information from computer interface, books and archives to create a simplified imagery that reflects “a moment/place in a mental or social structure of relations.” The artist also considers that they offer a comment on the specific context for which the work was produced.

Manuel Mesquita:
Working mainly in several music- and cinema related activities, he laboured in editing (sound & video),
some voice narration for documentaries, subtitling, translation and has made both video and sound installations in the context of Art exhibitions.

Friday 30 January 2015, Jubilee Studio 5, Digby Stuart College
University of Roehampton, London SW15 5PH

This event is open to students, academics, practitioners and others. The day is FREE but spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.

Please email c.hamilton@roehampton.ac.uk to reserve a place.

In recent years the ‘archival turn’ in feminist scholarship and gender and queer theory has expanded talk of the archive well beyond history - and indeed well beyond traditional forms of scholarship - to prompt debates and interventions across academic areas, and between scholars, cultural practitioners, archivists and activists over the modes and politics of archiving, and the ways in which feminists and others create, construct and research ‘archives’.

This workshop is designed as a space for discussion across disciplines about the ways in which we understand, theorise and use archives from different academic perspectives, the ways in which archives and archival research is gendered, and the ways in which feminist interventions are changing the definition and shape of archives in the process.

The day will consist of two panel presentations (morning and afternoon), followed by a final roundtable and reception. There will be plenty of time for group discussion and exchange of ideas and experiences among speakers and participants.

Letter against repression and criminalization of civil protests in Mexico



"Letter against repression and criminalization of civil protests in Mexico"

November 22nd, 2014

Enrique Peña Nieto
President of Mexico

Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong
Ministry of the Interior

Jesús Murillo Karam
Attorney General

Special Rapporteurship for Freedom of Expression
Inter-American Commission on Human Rights
Organization of American States

To the international community

To the general public,

We wish to express our deepest alarm and anger over the repressive actions that the government of Mexico has systematically demonstrated in response to the public unrest generated by the disappearance of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa?s Teacher?s College.

President Enrique Peña Nieto?s statements about using state forces on November 19th, and the excesses committed by the anti-riot police and other security bodies against the peaceful civilian demonstration on November 20th, constitute ominous signs that threaten the peaceful development of the citizens? protest movement. Legitimate public outrage and mobilization movements in response to violence and impunity in Mexico are a direct consequence of the inefficiency of the Justice apparatus and a lack of confidence in the security forces. It is obvious that the same apparatus, deeply involved in corruption
scandals, is incapable of offering a political solution to the conflict that the country is going through. For these reasons, the Global Network #AyotzinapaSomosTodos and the signatories below make the following demands and points:

1. We alert governments, media and international organizations of the risks involved in criminalizing and repressing civil protests in Mexico. The use of State forces is not the solution to the political unrest that the country is experiencing, and this approach only increases Human Rights violations and conflicts between citizens and the government as well as violating the citizenry's rights of political expression.

2. Claims made by government officials that the social movement and its media are part of a destabilization campaign are very disturbing and must be rejected.

3. We support the intervention of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission of the OAS in the cases of extrajudicial killings and disappearances in Mexico. The international Community must demand that the Mexican government respect the human rights treaties it has signed.

4. We demand the immediate release of the demonstrators who were arbitrarily arrested on November 20th, 2014, during the peaceful demonstration in Mexico City's Central Square. We demand that the charges the judicial apparatus has filed against these citizens be retracted and that the authorities stop their transfer to remote prisons where they do not have legal assistance. We firmly denounce violations of the judicial process, including the hindering of defense attorneys from seeing their clients and providing proof of their innocence. The liberation of political prisoners is crucial for the restoration of the credibility of Mexican institutions.

We urge a fast response from the authorities and the recipients of this letter.

Thank you!

Carla Filipe: Harbour of Antuérpia: cruzamentos históricos" / "Quatre mois dagelijks sur Antuérpia + Bélgica

“Harbour of Antuérpia: cruzamentos históricos" / "Quatre mois dagelijks sur Antuérpia + Bélgica", por Carla Filipe.
Sábado, 8 de Novembro, 16h
Galeria Múrias Centeno
Rua Miguel Bombarda 531 Porto

Esta instalação apresenta dois conjuntos de desenhos e colagens resultantes da sua residência artística na Air Antwerp. Carla Filipe apresenta-nos um retrato da cidade de Antuérpia, projectando uma abordagem de cariz histórico, que encontra na zona portuária da cidade um foco inicial mas cujo alcance se estende muito para lá da sua delimitação geográfica.

Harbour of Antuérpia: cruzamentos históricos

A pesquisa alicerça-se em documentos adquiridos em Antuérpia, coligindo cadernos escolares da década de 60 com temas variados, que vão da história aos estudos de modelismo e moda (sendo também esta uma das imagens representativas da cidade). É com base nesta documentação que a artista concebe uma abordagem cronologicamente dilatada, recuando até aos tempos da nossa expansão marítima, à criação da feitoria portuguesa na Flandres e ao impacto decisivo que esta teve no florescimento de Antuérpia, projectando a cidade como centro da “economia do mundo” no séc. XVI.

O porto de Antuérpia encerra também um pequeno capítulo da história do judaísmo. Muitos dos judeus portugueses (sefardistas), expulsos do território nacional entre 1492 e 1497, fugiram para Antuérpia, vindo a desempenhar um papel significativo no desenvolvimento cultural e económico dos Países Baixos.

Centrando-se numa cidade estrangeira, este estudo acaba por ser para a artista – pelas razões acima evocadas – uma forma de compreender melhor o seu próprio país. Portugal, hoje endividado, outrora grande potência.

Quatre mois dagelijks sur Antuérpia + Bélgica

O título deste grupo de trabalhos é composto por três idiomas: francês, o flamengo (holandês) e o português, língua materna da artista, expressa no nome da cidade e do país. A amálgama linguista presente no título tem como propósito contrariar as “fronteiras” entre o Norte e Sul da Bélgica, divisão que vemos replicar-se numa Europa que, paradoxalmente aos modelos sócio-económicos preconizados, se apresenta cada vez mais demarcada por regionalismos.

O trabalho apresentado compõe-se de colagens e desenhos que partem das observações e vivências da artista durante a sua permanência nesta cidade flamenga. O conjunto de suportes utilizados, que vão dos acetatos, cartões, até aos recortes de revistas que a artista foi reunindo, traduzem plasticamente o diálogo entre materiais adquiridos em lojas, em alfarrabistas ou, simplesmente, encontrados.

Alex Martinis Roe: ‘Once I wrote the story of her life, because by then I knew it by heart’

‘Once I wrote the story of her life, because by then I knew it by heart’
an exhibition by Alex Martinis Roe
opening on Saturday the 4th of October ~ 6 to 9 pm ~

The title of this exhibition refers to the ember of a friendship, the one between two women called Amalia and Emilia.  While living around Milan in the 70s they attended ‘La Scuola delle 150 ore’, an education program of arts and science for workers and housewives, where they engaged in a series of writing exercises. Emilia had a strong urge to tell the story of her ordinary life, yet she couldn’t express herself in linear articulated language. It was Amalia, who being confronted with the multiple attempts of her friend decided to write down Emilia’s life as a gift to her.  Emilia would then carry ‘her’ biography in her handbag and ‘read it again and again’. The small narration written by Amalia is at once hers as it is Emilia’s.
It is between these empathic oscillations of the self and the other that the works of Alex Martinis Roe operate. Like a quantum physicist, the artist looks into the short-lived entities that come in and out of existence so quickly that they are not clearly detected by history. It is perhaps inevitable that feminist readings and stories stand at the core of Martinis Roe’s interest. It is the human encounters, the conversations, the empathic entrustments and the lapses of language that she is interested in.
In her work Alex Martinis Roe enters the history of art and of thought as a house where a family of characters from different temporalities and different geographies meet each other at unexpected and performative moments. An older painting, a letter, a conversation that happened between two persons in a bookshop, come into life as their indeterminate existence is projected in the future.
~ - ~ ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~
Alex Martinis Roe (b.1982 Melbourne) is an artist living in Berlin. She completed her PhD in Fine Art at Monash University Australia in 2010. Recent exhibitions/events include: Affirmative Practices, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (solo, 2014); Making Room: Spaces of Anticipation, ar/ge Kunst Galerie Museum, Bolzano (2014); A story from Circolo della rosa, Archive Kabinett, Berlin (solo, 2014)

This year, Alex Martinis Roe continues her work on connected genealogies of feminist practice with a new performance, commissioned by Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory (Utrecht) in collaboration with If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution (Amsterdam), which will take place on the 3rd December 2014 in Utrecht, NL.

Event with talks and performances, Saturday, 26 July, 5.30 to 8.30pm 

Fay Nicolson: Never Odd or Even, a reading
Fay Nicolson will read a chapter entitled 'Script for a School Play' from her 2011 text 'Never Odd or Even'. This section of text explores the concept of 'latency' (as a gap or delay in time) and draws abstract connections between data, language, time, work, education and understanding. Never Odd or Even was originally published in A Circular (Issue 1), 2011.

The School of the Event Horizon: Oracular Sponge
Do you find being fixed in space and time a bind? Would you like to know all possible scenarios at once? Discover multiple answers to the fundamental questions of your life with the Oracular Sponge (Version 003.1a). The Department of Foresight (part of the School of the Event Horizon) will launch their new time granulation device with a talk and demonstration.

Cathy Haynes: A Map of Shadows
Cathy Haynes attempts to divide and order shadows by type and value, with category notes on street lamps, retromancy and the Sun god Ra.

before breakfast we talked about the furthest visible point before it all disappeared is a multifaceted project that includes a group exhibition, an event and a publication produced in collaboration with Tenderbooks. The publication gives space to the research leading into the exhibition and events, but also allows for parallel investigations to unfold and ideas to diverge. While the publication will be circulated and distributed during and after the exhibition to ensure an afterlife to the conversation, the events will provide an opportunity for a wider audience to engage with the thinking process, to share anecdotes and corresponding ideas.

Community Haystacks invites everyone with an interest in the history and current use of the marshes to take part, with the aim to reintroduce annual communal harvest events to the former Lammas Land.
The Walthamstow Marshes are one of the last expanses of semi-natural marshland left in London, and were formerly used widely for grazing and haymaking. Since 1985 the land has been designated a Site of Special Specific Interest (SSSI) and is now managed by the Lee Valley Regional Park. Traditionally the Marshes were considered “common land” and Lee Valley Regional Park now conserves the Marshes using an ancient system of management, where hay is cut on Lammas Day (1 August).

The event takes place on the Lammas Meadows behind the Lee Valley Ice Rink on Lea Bridge Road. For event bookings and further information visit: visitleevalley.org.uk/haystacks
Scything Lessons
Friday and Saturday, 1-2 August, 1.30pm & 4.30pm
Scything expert Clive Leeke will run two-hour workshops (priced at £5 to cover use of tools and refreshments), which will include practical experience of different scything methods as well as information about the numerous advantages of traditional scything.
Alternatively, if you’re a dab-hand at sycthing, why not just come along!
Friday and Saturday, 1-2 August, 7pm
Free talks on the Marshes and the chance to discuss broader issues related to the history, management and current use of the site. Invited speakers include artist and architect Céline Condorelli, food grower and conservationist Fiona Fiona McAllister (Growing Communities), artist Alana Jelinek and a representative from the New Lammas Land Defence Committee.
Haystack Making
Sunday, 3 August, 12-4pm
Day three will be dedicated to gathering hay and building haystacks. This is a family friendly event and guests are invited to bring their own picnic and join in the making of the largest haystack the Marshes have seen for while! The park rangers will also offer guided walks around the meadows with first-hand information about the wildlife, plants and land management.
The event corganised by the Lee Valley Regional Park Rangers together with artists Kathrin Böhm and Louis Buckley.
This year’s ‘Haystack’ follows on from a first public haystack making on the marshes in 2013. Click here.
Haystacks are a series of informal meetings to talk about rural links and practices, started by Kathrin Böhm / myvillages.org.

Molluscs Hunt Wizards launch event

Molluscs Hunt Wizards is a project that looks for markers and boundaries of experience and potential within desert and plains landscapes and uses this research to create new sculpture and drawing. Within the narrative of Molluscs Hunt Wizards, molluscs and wizards act as metaphors for gradual and dynamic modes of action or experience, molluscs being gradual, wizards being dynamic.

From early August 2014 Sovay Berriman will travel from Beijing (China) to UlaanBaatar (Mongolia) to join a three week research trip into the Gobi. Following this she will fly to Australia to meet with artist-led groups and visit deserts of the red-centre and the Willandra Lakes. Throughout this journey Berriman will gather information regarding markers and boundaries from those with knowledge of these landscapes, and from her own experiences.

Please join us for the launch of Molluscs Hunt Wizards to learn more about the project and share your own tales of big open spaces and the markers and boundaries you have found there. We’ll be talking planning, maps, methods of exploration and the power of fantasy.

The Interview Room,
The Old Police Station, Deptford, SE14 6LG
7 - 8:30pm, Friday 1st August 2014.

Molluscs Hunt Wizards is entirely funded through private sources, a crowd-funding campaign is running to gather the remaining finance required. Please visit https://www.sponsume.com/project/molluscs-hunt-wizards to help to raise funds and spread the word.
Through sources that it would be unfair of me to expose here, I have discovered that wizards head to deserts to charge their power and test their affect. My aim is to find the edges of their testing grounds, and the markers of their moments of power. To harness these to navigate my way through the desert, collecting moments of experience and charting the stages and platforms that promote dynamic transformative actions.


In dialogue: Terre Thaemlitz, Laurence Rassel & Griselda Pollock

In dialogue: Terre Thaemlitz, Laurence Rassel & Griselda Pollock 14 July, 6–8pm, at Wharf Chambers, Leeds

Image courtesy Comatonse Recordings

Pavilion presents a discussion between audio producer Terre Thaemlitz, curator Laurence Rassel, and art historian Griselda Pollock. The event considers the male/female gender paradigm in relation to feminism's dismantling of patriarchy.

Terre Thaemlitz is a transgender audio producer, DJ and writer whose work combines a critical look at identity politics with an ongoing analysis of the socio-economics of commercial media production.

Laurence Rassel is currently Artistic Director of Fundació Antoni Tàpies. Between 1997-2008, as part of Constant, Brussels, her investigative work centred around feminist artistic practice and intellectual property. In 2007 she collaborated with Thaemlitz on The Laurence Rassel Show, an electroacoustic radio drama about feminist anonymity.

Griselda Pollock is Professor of the Social & Critical Histories of Art at the University of Leeds. She is a major influence in the areas of feminist theory, feminist art history and gender studies and played an important role in establishing Pavilion in 1983.

This event forms part of Pavilion’s ongoing preoccupation with the organisation’s history as a feminist photography centre.

Alex Martinis Roe, A story from Circolo della rosa (2014) | High definition video still of a photograph by P.H. Vanda-Vergna from the Milan Women’s Bookstore Collective Archive

With Marirì Martingengo, Milan Women’s Bookstore Collective, Laura Minguzzi, Milan Women’s Bookstore Collective , Iris van der Tuin, Gender Studies and Philosophy of Science, Utrecht University , Alex Martinis Roe, Fellow of the Graduate School for the Arts, UdK

An encounter between two generations of practitioners, who all participate in the production of feminist history, theory or art, and who engage with a common genealogy of thought on sexual difference. Exploring the relationship of recent new feminist materialist accounts of processes of “sexual differing” to earlier Italian and French philosophies and political practices of sexual difference, will provide a way of engaging both generations together now to construct speculative feminist futures.


Marirì Martinengo, born in Liguria and now elderly, lives and works in Milan, where she taught literature in schools. Since 1980 she has taken regular shifts as a cashier at the Milan Women's Bookstore and participated in its other relational, political and cultural activities and those of its club, Circolo della rosa. In the 80’s she implemented especially designed programs at the school where she was teaching, with particular attention to the education of girls through the application of a pedagogia della differenza (pedagogy of difference). She then subsequently devoted herself to historical research on female Occitan poets and published her work on Hildegard von Bingen and her letters, among others (le Trovatore 1996). She then dedicated herself to researching the poignant story of her paternal grandmother, her writing on which has given rise to the practice and theory of storia vivente (living history). She is currently researching the topic "An opportunity to be grasped: the invention of old age” with a group of women. News about her can be found on the internet under the heading Marirì Martinengo.

Laura Minguzzi was born in Ravenna in 1949 and lives in Milan. She graduated from the Faculty of Foreign Languages at Ca 'Foscari in Venice, with a thesis on women's and feminist movements in Russia. Since it began, she has participated in the Movimento di Pedagogia della differenza (Pedagogy of Difference Movement), founded by Marirì Martinengo. In Sapere di sapere (Knowing to Know) (1995) she wrote about this experience.

Carla Filipe. da cauda à cabeça, o livro

Lançamento 26/03/2014

Apresentação por Luís Silva e conversa em torno do projeto da cauda à cabeça com Carla Filipe e Pedro Lapa.
O Museu Coleção Berardo publica, em parceria com a Archive Books, um livro sobre a obra de Carla Filipe, por ocasião da exposição da cauda à cabeça. Esta monografia centra-se no projeto que a artista realizou para o museu, através de um ensaio de Pedro Lapa, curador da exposição, e de um conjunto de fotografias da sua instalação. O livro inclui também uma seleção de trabalhos anteriores. Outros textos, de Vít Havránek e Pedro G. Romero, e uma entrevista conduzida por Stephan Dillemuth, contextualizam a obra da artista e este projeto em particular.

Isabel Ribeiro: Castigo

Os trabalhos da artista, que começou a expor em 2001, são percorridos por diversas inquietações geradas na modernidade e que têm a ver com um fracasso do indivíduo com o que o rodeia: a crise individual, a crise colectiva, o conflito entre o individual e o social, as transformações do espaço, as forças de mudança, a solidão da luta, o contínuo falhanço dos movimentos de mudança, os dilemas e a longevidade da comunidade, a depressão, o desemprego, a solidão, o tédio.
Um procedimento comum em muitas das suas pinturas é a produção de ligeiras alterações, de deslocamentos, de reenquadramentos, de substituição ou anulação de elementos da imagem de referência. São imagens nas quais a artista representa lugares de fuga que falam desse fracasso.

RAM MAN| The Quiver Made of Flesh: Catarina Miranda

14 e 15 de Fevereiro, pelas 21h30, no Auditório do Teatro do Campo Alegre.

“Construção de um espaço cénico habitado por uma pulsão animal, que irrompe a partir de um corpo humano. O lugar que medeia esta transposição de características zoomórficas, é atravessado pelo ímpeto de movimento e de ar, onde um objecto, uma pele, submetido a um processo de metamorfose, é impregnado de vida, gerando um estado de vitalidade.”

Of Other Bodies, a show gathering together some new articulations of the politics of the body. Of Other Bodies features recent works by Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, Kevin Burns and Falke Pisano, and draws on interpretations of illness, disability and bodily difference offered by radical 'crip theory'. Sharing the critical perspective of queer theory on the representation of bodies, pleasures, and identities, crip theory exposes neoliberal disciplines of 'compulsory able-bodiedness' (McRuer, 2006) and proposes an even more 'thorough resistance to regimes of the normal' (Warner, 1993:xxvi)
Circumnavigating established disability narratives of overcoming, heroism and pitifulness, the works in Of Other Bodies rethink the possibilities offered by instances of bodily crisis, disruption and difference.
Of Other Bodies will be accompanied by a public programme of collateral events including HOLO, a performance-lecture by Kevin Burns, commissioned by CCA, on February 27th at 7pm.

For further events, please visit our website www.cca-derry-londonderry.org

Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz (CH, DE) In their primarily filmic works, the two artists deal with the emergence of photography and film against the backdrop of colonial history and the invention of body norms. Historical photographs, texts or songs become the starting point for their search for alternative (sexual) practices and ways of living, conjoining with subversive approaches from pop, glamour, and camp. Recent exhibitions include PER SPECULUM ME VIDEO, Frankfurter Kunstverein (2013); Patriarchal Poetry, Badischer Kunstverein, (2013); Toxic, Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, as part of the Triennale Paris (2012); Patriarchal Poetry, Badischer Kunstverein (2013); A Toxic Play in Two Acts, South London Gallery (2012); and No Future / No Past,Swiss Off-Site Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale (2011).

Kevin Burns' (NI) performance-lecture for Of Other Bodies reconsiders the role of speech disfluency – 'stammering' or 'stuttering' - as a disruption of economic and cultural norms. Burns examines the capacity of stammering to expand the boundaries of what is considered 'speech', by tracing the mutation and re-deployment of spoken gesture in digital speech and cloud-data technology.

Falke Pisano (NL, DE) works across a range of media and modes, including sculpture, drawing, video, performance-lectures and texts. Her work, The Body in Crisis (2011-), tracks changing conditions of the human body in historical moments of crisis. Pisano recently held solo exhibitions at The Showroom, London (2013) and De Vleeshal, Middelburg (2012). Her work was included in the Istanbul Biennial (2013), the Shanghai Biennale (2012), and the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009). In 2013, she received the Prix de Rome. Originally from the Netherlands, Pisano lives and works in Berlin.

The work of Carla Filipe (n. 1973) has been proved one of the most significant projects happening in Portugal at the end of the last decade. The artist´s study makes an archeology on the issues and ways of life that aroused, in the course of modernity, associated with certain expectations of another world reality whose implementation has proved quite different. Many of Carla´s work go toward an autobiographical nature, some relate to episodes of micro-stories, others to the social and political history. They all consist of a narrative structure where the object, the design, installation and word are recurring media.

"from head to tail" is an unprecedented large-scale project undertaken for this exhibition at Museu Coleção Berardo and gathers some previous work along new material. Focusing on research on the Portuguese Railways and bringing into the space of the museum fragments of houses, architectural structures, furnishings, collections of uniforms, union flags, elements and functional mechanisms of everyday railway stations, fictional and documentary films or drawing plans of machines, which will articulate with each other, moving along other autobiographical waste in order to create a ghostly file, which dismisses any claim to scientific approach to reveal a sensitive knowledge of an historical reality.

As in most of Carla Filipe´s work, in "from head to tail" the objects from the world, related to each other, beyond its instrumental functions trace a beam of relations susceptible of defining a broad set of narratives that complicate its apparent simplicity or even insignificance. They become a supplement among the missing stories that run them and resend them. As such, proving to be the assignment of space for memory that the work of Carla Filipe wake´s up and reinvents.

Material Memória é um ciclo de artes cénicas e cinema comissariado por Pablo Fidaglo, apresentado no contexto da exposição 'Veraneantes', patente no Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Vigo. Miguel Bonneville apresenta a performance Miguel Bonneville #6 e estreia Qué hacen a estas horas los coroneles? - performance em colaboração com o artista Pablo Fidalgo Lareo.

17 e 18 de Janeiro às 19h30 Em Miguel Bonneville #6 comecei uma nova fase do meu trabalho. Um trabalho com uma filosofia mais aprofundada sobre o tema da identidade. Sobre as questões de autoria, originalidade, solidão, identidade, narcisismo, autobiografia. As autobiografias feitas por mulheres sempre foram, ao longo da história, vistas como incompletas, descontinuas, incoerentes, fragmentadas ou privadas. Vejo assim também o meu trabalho, pois sei que uma autobiografia coerente, continua e narrativa é uma impossibilidade. Será sempre incompleta, em continua transformação e regeneração.

24 e 25 de Janeiro às 19h30
Por onde começar a luta real? O que fazer quando já não faz sentido ir se manifestar? Contra quem apontar? Essa violência exercida sobre o mundo só é credível quando um conta o seu relato íntimo e pessoal. Para isso, falarão com políticos, líderes dos seus respectivos países, economistas, e sobretudo, militares. Ainda que os dois se declarem abertamente opostos ao exército, não podem deixar de se perguntar que pensa o exército numa situação limite como a actual. Querem perguntar: Posso falar com o presidente esta noite? Posso falar com o rei? Posso dizer-lhe o que penso deste país? Posso levantar o exército tal como Mishima? O que fazem a estas horas os coronéis?
Paulo Fidalgo e Miguel Bonneville conhecem-se em 2012 em Lisboa. Compreendem que levam anos a desenvolver trabalhos paralelos e decidem oferecer uma conferência para o explicar. Este projecto é apoiado por Azala (País Basco), Fundação Gulbenkian e Marco Vigo. Estreia em Vigo.


PRACTISING FEMINISM : Activism and Practice @ goldsmiths, London


23rd/ 24th January Activism and Practice

The second series of workshops and lectures, Practising Feminism, will happen this month. Practicing Feminism considers questions of feminist art practice; what the role of feminism is in contemporary art practice, how we relate to feminist genealogies, critiques, methods and theory as practising artists, writers and critics, how might we resituate knowledge as feminist, and how feminist practices and methodologies have and continue to influence contemporary art practices.
The 2nd day of the Practising Feminism series will look at practices in relation to feminism and activism and will consider how feminist strategies of protest are being deployed in contemporary political events including embodied protest. Some of the questions to be addressed include; Who are these practices speaking for and to?  What is their role within a wider context of activism?  Are they symbolic or actual agents of change?  What can we learn from a feminist critique of the relationship between art and politics?

Thursday 23rd Jan RHB 137A 6pm
Evening Lecture: Sara Ahmed 'Feminist Killjoys (And Other Willful Subjects)'  
Friday 24th Jan
2 workshop sessions and a screening by Cinenova.  Participants and details of the confirmed schedule for the day will be circulated next week. If you require any other info please contact Linda Stupart linda.stupart@gmail.com or Karen Henderson klhende@hotmail.com

All women art spaces as heterotopias - Helsinki

University of Helsinki, August 29-31 2014

Deadline: January 30, 2014

Open panel at the Fourth Biennial Conference of the European Network for Avant-garde and Modernism Studies UTOPIA (www.eam2014.com)

One of the important elements of the women's art movement emerging in the 1970s was the creation of all women art spaces. They existed for a longer period of time or just during one exhibition or even one performance. They were to offer an alternative to the unfriendly reality of male-dominated art world and aimed at creating an environment where women artists could address the experiences of women. The most famous of them - Womanhouse (Los Angeles 1972) - has already been thoroughly analysed. This panel seeks to explore much lesser known women art spaces functioning in different European countries. Its focus will be on the 1970s but proposals that deal with initiatives that were undertaken later are also invited. Papers are expected to analyse ideas, forms of their implementation and effects of these diverse heterotopias. The panel chair's proposal to characterise all women art spaces as heterotopias is to be discussed.

Chair: Agata Jakubowska (Hab. Ph. D.), Associate Professor at Department of Art History, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland (jagata@amu.edu.pl)
