Charlottenborg Art Talks: Angela Dimitrikaki
"Is This Rosa Luxemburg or Is It Art? Revolutionary Memory and Feminist Struggle Today"
17.00 - 18.30
The lecture considers the political and affective need for an exchange between 21st-century feminism and a revolutionary past that is violated, excised, and undermined: that of female socialist leaders and intellectuals.
With an emphasis on Sanja Ivekovic's work on/with Rosa Luxemburg the analysis will raise broader issues pertaining to the potential of feminism as revolution today.
Dr. Angela Dimitrakaki is a writer and Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Art History and Theory at the University of Edinburgh.
