“In my experience, patriarchal art education fails its female students”

25 November, 6.30 – 8.00pm
Cooper Gallery, Dundee

Taking as a point of departure the various women’s groups that came together in British art schools in the 1970s and early 1980s, this workshop will explore the idea of feminist space in relation to pedagogy. Our discussions will depart from manifestos produced by groups in the 1970s, a video of women on retreat in the 1980s and examples of contemporary activism on campus, in order to consider what prohibits feminist theory and practice in the context of the art school as well as strategies for carving out feminist spaces despite sometime hostile conditions.
