Carmen Winant & Justine Kurland at the NY Art Book Fair

September 22, 2019

Is it possible to side-step patriarchy all together? Can artmaking give shape to feminist liberation struggle? What capacitates the building of anti-capitalist worlds? Carmen Winant and photographer Justine Kurland deliver two presentations — set to a score of found and self authored images and video — about the political power of dropping out (refusing male supremacy; believing in a system yet unseen) as it concerns photography and the radical feminist imaginary.

This program is held on occasion of Winant’s book Notes on Fundamental Joy; seeking the elimination of oppression through the social and political transformation of the patriarchy that otherwise threatens to bury us, a treatise on lesbian feminist separatism published by Printed Matter Inc.

This event takes place as part of the Classroom series during the NY Art Book Fair, at MoMA Ps1. Following the 2pm presentation Winant will sign copies of Notes on Fundamental Joy at the Printed Matter booth (LOBBY), starting at 3pm.
