manifestroom: Searching for Feminist Futures

Sun, Nov 11, 11:00am to 12:15pm, Hilton Atlanta, 4, 406


This paper considers the critical work of the feminist manifesto as a document informed by the past but envisioned for the future. It does this through a study of the performance project manifestroom (2014): a conceptual action headquarters, a meeting place for contemporary political needs, and a space for interaction with historical documents from radical and artistic movements from around the globe, such as Idle No More, Yvonne Rainer, and Valerie Solanas’s Scum Manifesto. This paper will consider the live manifestos written during the performance in 2014 in the gallery space as they inform on our contemporary moment in 2018.
