If anyone is familiar with the stellar feminist magazine make/shift (and get your hands on a copy ASAP if you aren’t!), you’ll be thrilled to know that there is an affiliated event that will be stopping by NYC in the next few days. It’s called Makeshift Reclamation, and it’s a bit hard to describe, so I’ll defer to their own words:
“A multimedia event showcasing how contemporary feminists are resisting and creating alternatives to not only gender-based oppression but also a collapsing economic system, climate crisis, and more. Featuring live readings, performances, and video works by artists and activists including Jessica Hoffmann, coeditor/copublisher of the independent, transnational, antiracist feminist magazine make/shift; Hilary Goldberg, whose new project, recLAmation, is a Super 8 experimental documentary/narrative film in which queer superheroes navigate a future beyond capitalism; and others.”
October 14, 2010 Barnard College, 6:30 pm
October 16, 2010 Bluestockings, 7 pm
Both events are free.
