Martha Rosler speaking at MoMA

The Feminist Future: Theory and Practice in the Visual Arts

Friday–Saturday, January 26–27, 2007 9:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. both days

This symposium addresses critical questions surrounding the relationship between art and gender, bringing together international leaders in contemporary art, art history, and related disciplines. After the activism of the 1960s and ’70s, and the revisionist critiques of the 1980s and ’90s, this symposium will examine ways in which gender is currently addressed by artists, museums, and the academy, and its future role in art practice and scholarship.

Friday, January 26, 2007 Panel: Body/Sexuality/Identity Martha Rosler, artist

  3. Does Feminism Discriminate Against Men? A Debate

    Does feminism give a much-needed voice to women in a patriarchal world? Or is the world not really patriarchal? Does feminism support equality in education and the military, or does it discriminate against men by ignoring such issues as male-only draft registration and boys lagging behind in school? This book offers a sharp debate on the impact of feminism on men between bestselling author Warren Farrell and the acclaimed philosopher James P. Sterba. Join us for a wide-ranging exchange on issues from love, sex, dating, and rape to domestic violence, divorce, and child custody, as well as systemic issues, from the school system to the criminal justice system, the media to the military, and health care to the workplace.
