Organised by Sarah Browne and Jenny Richards.
Join us for the second in a series of screenings and discussions at Mint that feels for the body’s place in contemporary labour relations from intersectional feminist positions. This screening shares the work of Rehana Zaman; ’Tell me the story Of all these things’, Tina Keane; ’In Our Hands, Greenham’, Ralph Lundsten & Rolf Nilson; ’Främmande Planet’.
This screening continues discussions around the registering of different types of work, this time touching upon collective forms of working both within the content of the films and their production. Rehana Zaman’s and Tina Keane’s film in particular, focus on women’s collectivity within relations of political organising and feminised domestic work and the differences in how bodies and activity are registered with the state.
What does it mean to look at these films from a perspective of labour? In what ways can we give form and recognition to the types of activity we are engaged in, in order to go beyond the current concept of work and how it is represented? How can we articulate the polyphonic dimension of lived life?
