Event description
Femxle Football Reading Group

About this Event

The Femxle Football Reading Group has been established as part of a larger curatorial project, Against the Run of Play. A programme of screenings, workshops and art events, the project took place in the lead up to, during and in the aftermath the FIFA Women's World Cup, which kicked off in France on the 7th of June.

The aim of this Reading Group is to map and give critical context to barriers, social (mis)conceptions and achievements of femxles within football, the broader field of sport and sports culture.

We meet on a monthly basis, with each session framed by an overarching theme, which is decided upon at the end of the previous session. These could range from socio-political questions around gender, race and capital, to thinking about spectatorship and the role of culture or friendship. Those that attend the reading group are warmly invited to suggest texts and specific topics; we want this to be a discursive research tool which is shaped collectively and conversationally.

The Reading Group is open to all backgrounds and genders; footballer, artist, both or neither - we are interested in everybody’s contribution to the discussion.

Access Notes

1. Under 18's are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

2. Although AMP Gallery is on the ground floor and has a 810mm entrance, it unfortunately does not have a fully accessible bathroom. There is a disabled bathroom at Queen's Road Peckham station (7 minutes walk away from AMP Gallery) which we have an extra key for. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss other accessibility details.

3. If tickets are sold out online but you would still like to attend this event, get in touch at fat.studio.cic@gmail.com or 07896749760 and we'll add you to the wait list. We will also hold a few tickets for each event at AMP Gallery from when we open on the 7th November, so come in and pick one up if you're in the area.
