What Makes Contemporary Photography Feminist and Queer?



This session will address questions concerning the active construction of identity through gender indeterminacy; the representation of lesbian, trans, and cross-dressing individuals in photographic art; and, more broadly, the relationship between new gender roles since the advent of feminism and the intertwined fight for women’s and queer rights. This conversation accompanies the September 2016 Forum: ‘Queer Photography from Stonewall to AIDS.” Learn more: http://mo.ma/2j02mh8
