Of Other Spaces: Where Does Gesture Become Event?, Sophia Yadong Hao (Ed.), 2019


Detailed Description

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. 

The core of the publication is constituted by material presented and performed by over thirty thinkers, art historians, artists, writers and poets at the project’s culminating symposium, 12-Hour Action Group alongside important historical texts by Susan Hiller, Mary Kelly, Monica Ross, Annabel Nicolson and others.

Resonating with the ethos of open dialogue and the experimentation of women artists’ collectives in the 1970s and 80s, Of Other Spaces: Where Does Gesture Become Event? constructs a dynamic, open and collaborative arena that foregrounds practices of resistance, collectivity and self-organisation. Highlighting the inherent seditiousness that animates feminist thinking, the book seeks out the lodestone of a volatile politics, which calls for and instigates urgent alternatives to the cultural, political and economic machineries of power that haunt this world.
