About this event

Three (or More) Ecologies: A Feminist Articulation of Eco-Intersectionality - Part I: For The World To Live, Patriarchy Must Die

Angela Olga Anderson

2019

37'

The way one relates to land, water and “resources” is reflected in the way one produces goods, relations and affinities. “Three (or more) Ecologies: A Feminist Articulation of Eco-intersectionality – Part I: For the World to Live, Patriarchy Must Die” juxtaposes the highly industrial/technical nature of the destructive fracking industry driving North Dakota’s Bakken shale oil boom on the Ft. Berthhold - Three Affiliated Tribes Reservation with voices from Jinwar – Village of Free Women, a women’s collective agricultural village project in the autonomous region of Rojava (Northern Syria).

The first chapter of this ongoing audio-visual research project emphasizes the urgent necessity of redefining value in the face of economic models that are driving the current climate crisis and the ongoing disruption/destruction of ecosystems, with blatant disregard for the embodied knowledge these ecosystems cultivate and nourish. It calls into question capitalism’s unbridled accumulation, fostered by competition, inequality and exploitation, the undergirding of patriarchal society, and comes to a singular conclusion: For the world to live, patriarchy must die.

Feminist Economics Football - A Cooperative Game for Sheffield

2022

Feminist Economics Football: A Cooperative Game for Sheffield was created by Ailie Rutherford, Sapna Agarwal and Mandy Roberts for the Feminist Exchange Network.

Commissioned by Sheffield DocFest for Alternate Realities 2022 with support from Site Gallery and Arts Council England

The first game of Feminist Economics Football was played in Cathkin park, Glasgow last year. Devised by the artists in response to shifts in social and collaborative arts practice through the covid pandemic.

For Alternate Realities in Sheffield, Feminist Economic Football presented the adjacent possibility of a world founded on cooperation, where we work together to create a socially and environmentally just society founded on the core principles of feminist economics: a process centred on the love of people not profit. The cooperative match played on a hexagonal pitch between three teams: Decolonisation, Ecofeminism and Caring Economy, uses the format of the game to looking at how a truly feminist approach to economics can’t function without all of these aspects intersecting. This short film, directed by Juliet Ellis, documents the match that took place in Sheffield.

Sapna Agarwal

Sapna Agarwal is an artist, educator, community activist, facilitator and organiser who loves to stop and talk. She uses play, stories, texts, discussion and everyday chat to explore decoloniality, radical care, social justice and climate issues, working primarily with young people and intergenerational groups.

She develops and runs the Woodlands Community Anti-Racist library in Glasgow, organising an on-going series of events to engage people in difficult conversations whilst building community cohesion. As a partner in the radical, independent bookshop, Aye-Aye Books, she has curated a selection of children’s books that push the voices of the marginalised to the fore, as well as forging community links so that children can have access to the books. Recent works include editing the children’s book, “What Starts Here Stops Here” as part of Hope Street Collective in response to COP26, Queer Care Camp (Studio Voltaire, London), and Reading Between the Lines (ArtLink, Edinburgh).

Mandy Roberts

Mandy Roberts is an artist, educator and creative facilitator whose practice spans visual and live art. She is passionate about art as a tool to engage with people, using co-construction as a framework to formulate projects with communities.

A common thread throughout Mandy’s work is the use of discarded objects and materials. Exploring the everyday things that make up the common fabric of our existence. Her use of this detritus as a conduit for overcoming life’s trauma, highlighting the wider impact on society. The resulting creations frequently have a duality generating; props, adornment and costumes for, and sometimes as part of performances.

Ailie Rutherford

Ailie Rutherford is a visual artist working at the intersection of community activism and creative practice. Her collaborative artworks bring people together in conversations about our social and economic landscape using print, performance, sci-fi visioning, games and technology as playful means to work through difficult questions and radically re-think our shared futures. Resulting works range from proposed new models for living and working together to the building of new infrastructure.

Her feminist economic artworks have been shown at Unbox festival, (Bengaluru, India) MoneyLab at Institute of Network Cultures (Amsterdam, Netherlands), Supermarkt (Berlin, Germany), Tracing The Tracks//Work Affair at Rum 46 (Aarhus, Denmark) White Papers on Dissent for Dutch Design Week at Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, Netherlands) and Documenta 15 (Kassel, Germany). She recently curated the Wired Women festival for NEoN Digital Arts (Dundee, Scotland) and is artistic director of the Feminist Exchange Network (Glasgow, Scotland)
