Posted on Readings with artist Josephine Pryde in mid-September, 2013
Berlin- and London-based artist Josephine Pryde has worked with photography, impromptu objects, and installation and is a relevant voice of her generation, engaging in activism, criticism, fashion, and feminism in subtle, stubborn and hilarious ways. Her pictures have depicted credit cards, sheep, models, and chicken and more recently affect-laden photos of teenagers contemplating pregnancy, photos of a young boy, and close-ups of fabrics. She has also taught and written about art for some time.
For her visit, she has suggested a discussion of readings by Alexander Garciá Düttmann, Shulamith Firestone, and Jordan Bear’s article on Julia Margaret Cameron’s Collaborations.
