Activism with Marianne Forrest.
Co-inciding with Marianne Forrest's Activism exhibition at The Cass, this Research Seminar explores activism in performance and design, as a form of research practice.
Cara Robinson is a Design History MA student from the Royal College of Art/ V&A about to complete a thesis entitled 'Digital Craftivism'. Her questions interrogate the role of online media and communities in contemporary women's rights activism, the production of objects adorned to perform at feminist activism and discusses the organisation of the spectacle of public activism as a designed object. The project focuses on the Pussy Power Hats seen at the Women's Marches in North America and UK in January - May 2017.
All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass. For more information email Jane Clossick at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on Twitter for the latest information @CassResearch
