Event description
Join LDG as we welcome back Alekszandra Rokvity for this lecture dedicated to Menstrual Art, breaking the blood taboo!

About this event

Menstruation art is provocative and confrontational. It confronts audiences with their own preconceived ideas about menstruation, social constructs and what is acceptable fare from female bodies.

This lecture led by Endometriosis and Menstruation Activist Alexkszandra Rokvity, will lead you through the history of menstruation art as a feminist statement, highlighting the politicized and divisive status of femininity in our society. We will explore some examples of the most famous works throughout a variety of mediums - performance, photography, drawing, digital art - and examine the crucial messages in this citing, unusual, and undoubtedly most 'taboo' of mediums.

Alekszandra is a PhD candidate at the University of Graz in Austria, working in the fields of Cultural Studies and Medical Humanities. Her work is focused on endometriosis and the social discourse surrounding menstruation. As a sufferer of endometriosis since her early teens, Alekszandra has made it her mission in life to demystify the illness, educate others, inspire young researchers, and help others in any way she can! Her second passion is writing fiction: she has published a collection of shorts stories, she blogs, and is currently working on a novel – and yes, inevitably, her creations feature endo warriors!

Organiser LONDON DRAWING GROUP

Organiser of MENSTRUAL ART: BREAKING THE BLOOD TABOO


The London Drawing Group is a collective of three contemporary artists currently practising in London. Although our practices are individually varied and diverse, we are brought together by our shared love of and passion for drawing, and our experiences of being taught by a huge range of practising artists at the Royal Drawing School Central.

Our aim as a collective is simply to get more people drawing, making, connecting and engaging with art. We genuinely believe that art is for everyone, and that sometimes the only thing keeping people from engaging in the playful, unknown and unpredictable process of art-making, is that it can seem intimidating. Through working to break down contextual barriers through innovative methods of teaching and creating, we hope to make drawing approachable to everyone.
