Andrea Bowers Whose Feminism is it Anyway? at Andrew Kreps Gallery
“Whose Feminism Is It Anyway?” continues my interest in making work about activists who dedicate their lives to social justice through direct action and nonviolent protest. This exhibition begins a new project that documents trans women activists committed to direct action and civil disobedience.
This project is inspired by an archive of political graphics, spanning the late 1800’s through today, that I have been collecting for 10 years. I began collecting these agitprop images because they illustrate women who embody progressive and radical left politics often in a social realist style. As the collection has grown I have become acutely aware of the absence of trans women from recorded political history. With this project I want to insert representations of trans liberation into these past histories and simultaneously create new graphics and images in support of the current trans feminist movement.
