What is Feminist Aesthetics?
26 January 2011
Is there a feminine or a feminist aesthetic in women’s art and what does this mean? Feminist aesthetics became the "catch-all" phrase for discussing what was different - and specifically feminist - in women’s art production and whether this was to do with content, with media, with political intent or with the context in which women artists’ work was shown. So, what is feminist aesthetics?

Feminist art and the Blockbuster Exhibition
23 February 2011
Since 2007, there have been many major feminist shows around the world. This seminar will review some recent feminist exhibitions and ask if these open up new directions for thinking about feminism as an international, rather than a national or local phenomenon? How would our definitions of feminism change if we started to pay attention to the substantial histories of feminist art in other countries?

Manifestos of Feminist Art
30 March 2011
Feminist artists and writers have published a large number of manifestos in the last forty years: on subjects as diverse: women’s
art (Valie Export); maintenance art (Mierle Ukeles); carnal art (Orlan) and cyber-feminism (OBN and VNS Matrix). This seminar is an opportunity to read, discuss and compare different manifestos on women’s art. Sample texts and a reading list will be provided.

All those booking a place in this first seminar will receive a complimentary pdf of n.paradoxa's Twelve Step Guide to Feminist Art Criticism and Art History.

Please note:
All seminars are now sold out. Email if you wish to be put on the reserve list in case of any ticket returns.
