Following a year of international conversations about the underrepresentation of women in the arts (think the Wikipedia Art+Feminism campaign and Tate’s ‘Where are the Women?’ short film), as well as the success of ICA’s Re-Materialising Feminism conferences, Lunch Bytes is dedicating an event to exploring what feminism means in the digitised world.
“If our bodies don’t end at the skin,” writes the press release, “but instead extend to and reconfigure themselves with the material environments they engage with, what kind of implications does this have for notions like representation, embodiment and gender?” Much like some of the other female-identified artists we’ve covered in the past, the conference begins with the body.
Moderated by Maria Lind, director Tensta konsthall, the conference invites artists Jesse Darling and Sofia Hultin, curator Rózsa Farkas, and editor and writer Elvia Wilk to discuss their work and how they “make use of, configure and create identities” through it. The discussion is also organised in conjunction with Hultin’s TK-comissioned project, ‘I Am Every Lesbian‘.
