The concept of intersectionality, which was first conceived by Black feminist legal scholar Kimberlé W. Crenshaw, has become a vital tool for navigating relational identities including race, class and gender in contemporary political discourse.
As part of an ongoing dialogue between British artist and researcher Anna Bunting-Branch and Afro-Carib curator, producer and activist Helen Starr, this tour of selected works from Prix Ars Electronica 2021 will explore how intersectional feminist practice can expand our perception of the world(s) in which we travel.
This sense of ourselves as world-travellers is inspired by Argentine feminist philosopher María Lugones’s essay ‘Playfulness, ‘World’‐Travelling, and Loving Perception’ (1987), which will be available for all participants to read before the tour.
