Next meeting March 10th 2010, 7-9pm - Expressions of anger and reason for action

A warm welcome to the next NPBIAC gathering, Wednesday, March 10th, 7-9 pm. Malin Arnell, one of the NPBIAC organizers, will host this meeting.

We will follow up the last meeting in which Catherine Lord and the group shared some strategies and methods using anger as driving force. For this meeting we suggest to collectively explore some expressions of anger and reason for action. (You can definitely attend even if you were not in the last meeting!)

Between 2002-2007 Malin Arnell was one-fourth of the feminist performance and artist group High Heel Sister (together with Line S. Karlström, Anna Linder and Karianne Stensland). The starting point for High Heel Sisters collaboration were their shared, yet varying, experiences of physical attributes of height (minimum 178 cm), shoe size (minimum 41) and age (minimum 30yrs). With a large dose of humor and a burning feminist zeal High Heel Sisters examined and took on many of society’s (and their own) expectations and accepted norms primarily associated with gender, sexuality and class.

We will start the meeting by screening two of High Heels Sisters videos: Scream (2007) and a documentation of our last performance, Screaming Mountain (2007) (now showing in the exhibition Gestures - Performance and Sound Art, at Museet for Samtidskunst, Roskilde, Denmark). From this body of work - let's try to embody some collective emotions...

This occasion is open to 20 participants and you need to RSVP to to be able to join, please do so before March 10th at noon.
