Introduction: on the Feminist Work of Organizing

Elke Krasny, Lara Perry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter


This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book applies the lens of ‘organizing’ to consider feminist curatorial labours, in order to bring into clear view the ways in which feminist curating acts as a political, theoretical, and material discourse that contests or competes with the hegemonic forms of organizing the world that give structure to our daily lives. It shows how contemporary curating as feminist organizing is best understood through projects that are responses to local contexts marked by the gendered inequalities that have marked aftermath of colonialism, imperialism, and authoritarianism. State authority extends across different domains from the military to social care and cultural institutions.
