Feminist Art as Self-Help
Presenting new works in feminist and queer cinema, the Feminist Art as Self-Help film series is inspired by the consciousness-raising ethos
of the 1970s feminist movement, “the personal is political,” and the feminist narcissism of écriture feminine, or “feminine writing.” Taking
the shape of an optical manifesto, diary entry, and hysterical scream, the films explore weird girls and art and aesthetic culture made at the
margins of male-dominated, racist art markets, and ask us to reimagine the rant as a mode of self-help and the manifesto as an instruction
This series is sponsored by the Department of Communication and Culture, the Film and Media Studies program, the Black Film
Center/Archive, the departments of English, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, and American Studies. Screenings are free, but ticketed.
