Outwrite Exhibition

WANT TO WORK ON AN EXHIBITION OF 1980s RADICAL ANTI-IMPERIALIST MEDIA??!!

***OUTWRITE OUTROSPECTIVE***
An Exhibition Exploring the Relevance of Outwrite’s Internationalist
Feminist Vision

Outwrite newspaper, produced by a collective of women throughout the 1980s, was dedicated to offering news by women, for women. Self-defined as an ‘internationlist feminist’ publication, the paper focused on ‘the
development of feminism worldwide’ and an examination of women’s oppressions ‘in the context of imperialism, racism and class divisions.’

The goal of this exhibition is to bring Outwrite’s politics alive in the present, to reflect on its struggles and successes with the aim of igniting future possibilities. So far, we have put together a diy exhibition of 10 A3 boards, exploring themes in the paper such as international solidarity, lesbianism, alternative media production and immigration issues.

So far we have exhibited the project at the Zine Fest! at the Women’s Library (24 January 2009) and the anti-capitalist race, gender and class conference at SOAS university (14 Feb 2009) We would love to have the show travel!
