Book now

Resonating with the ethos of open dialogue and the experimentation of women artists’ collectives in the 1970s and 1980s, the book launch for Sternberg Press’s new title ‘Of Other Spaces: Where Does Gesture Become Event?’ will construct a dynamic, open, and collaborative arena that foregrounds ideas of resistance, collectivity, and self-organisation. Sophia Yadong Hao, the book’s editor, will talk with Caroline Gausden and Adele Patrick from GWL and the event will include performances from Laura Edbrook & Sarah Forrest and 12: Women Poets’ Collective.

‘Of Other Spaces: Where Does Gesture Become Event?’ is an annotation and reflection on the two-chapter eponymous exhibition and event project that took place at Cooper Gallery (2016–17). Highlighting the inherent seditiousness that animates feminist thinking, the book seeks out the lodestone of a volatile politics that calls for and instigates urgent alternatives to the cultural, political, and economic machineries of power that haunt this world.

Contributors include seminal women thinkers, writers, and artists such as Anne Bean, Rose English, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, Margaret Harrison, Susan Hiller, Amelia Jones, Mary Kelly, Linder, Kirsty Logan, Lynda Morris, Laura Mulvey, Annabel Nicolson, Adele Patrick, Georgina Starr, Marina Vishmidt, et al.

Books will be sold at the discounted price of £15.
