“I would like to blur the firm borders that we human beings, cocksure as we are, are inclined to erect around everybody that is accessible to us… I want to show that small can be large and large small.” Hannah Höch

fyeahwomenartists:

I’m curating a film reel for The Collection in Lincoln this saturday… my selections are all female artists from the EASTinternational archive. I will feature; Ursula Mayer, Angela Bartram, Margaret Morgan, Monika Oechsler, Veronique Chance and Stephanie Smith. I hope it will be an eclectic collection of films which question the formulation of a feminist aesthetic. Recurring themes include the gaze, lips, mouths and the pressures of womanhood.
The event looks really exciting so if you’re in the vicinity be sure to check it out.
