Read Out! Read In! Feminist Lines of Flight in Art and Politics

In order to explore the question of how we have gone on, how we do go on now, and how we dream/ desire to go on in the future in response to a feminist heritage, artists Faith Wilding and Kate Davis have invited a wide range of co-inspiritors to select up to three starting points for feminist lines of flight in art and politics for discussion and feasting on.
These suggestions, which constitute a rich and expansive archive of texts, publications, audio/video, film-clips and images are available through this online archive and will be accessible in tangible form at the ‘Read Out! Read In!’ reading room and library collection collaboration with Glasgow Women’s Library at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow (April 16th-May 29th 2010). This material is also providing starting points for a network of reading groups and seminar events which have begun in Glasgow and Chicago and will continue on an international basis leading up to, during and after the exhibition. Anyone can add details of their own reading group or lines of flight to this site. In this way ‘Read Out! Read In! Feminist Lines of Flight in Art and Politics’ strives to connect many different points of departure for feminist thinking, discussion, making and create a rich archive of freely available inspiration. For updates on the project and any forthcoming events, please check here again.
This project is initiated in conjunction with Faith Wilding and Kate Davis’ two-woman discursive exhibition project, The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here? at the CCA, Glasgow and commissioned for Glasgow International.

To be enjoyed with a pot of black tea, “something light like Earl or Lady Grey”. “I think I would like to eat madeleines for fun, although I have never had one before. In the Proust madeleine moment, the cake is dunked in lemon verbena tea I think, so we should have some of that too.”
