    “In my experience, patriarchal art education fails its female students”
    Workshop / Reading Group led by Laura Guy
    Friday 25 November, 6.30-8.00pm

    Cooper Gallery

    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.

    Laura Guy is a writer based in Glasgow. Her work particularly focuses on radical print cultures in relation to queer and feminist cultural production. She is a lecturer in Fine Art Critical Studies at Glasgow School of Art and a postdoctoral researcher at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh.
