Rethinking Representations in the Media

15 June 2019


Venue: The Jago, 440 Kingsland Road, London, E8 4AA (entrance through 1 Richmond Road)

Organiser: Bad Housekeeping Project & the Feminist Library

Bad Housekeeping project started as conversations between friends, sharing books and discussing experiences. Now we’re opening up the conversation and creating a shared learning experience. We previously hosted the workshop at the Barbican. The Feminist Library is a large collection of Women's Liberation Movement literature based in London. We have been supporting research, activist and community projects since 1975.

From the opinions we hold, to the clothes you wear - how are we influenced by what we see and read in the media? Join us for this collage making workshop in partnership with the feminist library. Drawing ideas from the feminist library materials and other texts, we will look at examples of representations in the media such as gender and race to discuss how they impact us, and the particular ideology and perspectives that feed them. After, we will cut up recent magazines and newspapers to make collages and create our own messages that subvert media representations.
