Perimeter Talks | Alex Martinis Roe: To Become Two
Perimeter is thrilled to continue its programming initiative Perimeter Talks in 2019. Taking place approximately once a month, the series features lectures, panel discussions and more casual in-conversations with publishers, artists, curators, designers, writers and editors. The talks explore and address various themes and issues relating to contemporary photographic, art and design publishing – helping demystify, challenge and offer insight into publishing as a medium and a practice.
Our first talk of 2019 will see Alex Martinis Roe discuss her book To Become Two: Propositions for Feminist Collective Practice (Archive Books). The book offers a narrative of Martinis Roe’s research into a genealogy of feminist political practices in Europe and Australia from the seventies until today.
Alex Martinis Roe is an artist from Melbourne who lives in Berlin and Canberra. She is a former fellow of the Graduiertenschule, Universität der Künste Berlin, and holds a PhD from Monash University, Melbourne. Since 2012 her projects have focused on feminist genealogies, seeking to foster specific and productive relations among different generations, as a way of participating in the construction of feminist histories and futures. She is Head of Sculpture at the Australian National University and co-leads the transversal working group FORMATIONS together with philosopher Melanie Sehgal.
