Confrontational Perspectives, reawakens the spirit of Book Works: A Women’s Perspective (1992) in a night of beats, provocation, screening and confrontations, in order to reposition feminist art against the complacency of anodyne participation and aspirational networks.

Through a screening and discussion of current work Marina Vishmidt presents her research into embodied practices which stage a negative critique of work from a feminist perspective in the art of the past several decades and argues that the critique of womens’ labour can also evoke the critique of another kind of labour: the labour of reproducing and performing gender in a disciplinary economy of representation.

Claire Makhlouf Carter, whose work DEMO – PENFOLD STREET explores the limits and antagonisms of performance, self-immolation, social relations and stench.

The event finishes with a Chicks On Speed Performance – Lecture, A MODEST PROPOSAL featuring: Melissa Logan, Anat Ben-David, Rachael Matthews and Sonja Todd.

This event is organised as part of the project Again, A Time Machine.
