In this talk, Pamila Matharu and Lauren Fournier will be in conversation on the occasion of the launch of Fournier’s new book Autotheory as Feminist Practice in Art, Writing, and Criticism (The MIT Press, 2021). The two will discuss ideas that Fournier takes up in the book, including the state of the “autotheoretical turn” in recent feminist art, the role that histories of intersectional feminist activism play in contemporary conversations and trends, the ethics of disclosure and exposure, and the relationship between autotheory, autofiction, and other terms, like auto-ethnography. The two will draw from their backgrounds as artists, writers, and curators involved in feminist organizing in Toronto and elsewhere to discuss the use of autobiographical materials in critical and conceptual work. Books will be available for purchase.
