Panel Discussion
I Will Resist With Every Inch and Every Breath: Punk and the Art of Feminism

If you are having problems viewing the video, please ensure that your browser is not blocking content on this page.

On March 12, 2015, The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art presented a conversation about the confrontational forces of punk rock and feminism through the provocative work and personal experiences of multidisciplinary artists, writers, and curators Osa Atoe, Johanna Fateman, Narcissister, Lydia Lunch, and Astria Suparak. Punk has long been a refuge for nonconformists, a platform for DIY experimentation, and a means for voicing rage. These panelists will discuss the aesthetics and politics of punk in their own lives and work. Organized by A.I.R. Gallery and the Center for Women in the Arts & Humanities at Rutgers, and moderated by Leah DeVun.
