“Our Bodies, Online” is a part of the Confounding Expectations lecture series, which is sponsored by Aperture Foundation, the Photography Program at Parsons School for Design, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.

This conversation will focus on how women wield images of their bodies online as a tool of power and/or as sexual objectification, exploring the question of who is allowed to use their body in this way. What are the implications of bodies imaging themselves online in the name of feminism? What are the rules of feminism now? Should there be boundaries and definitions? Speakers include:

Aria Dean is an artist and writer based in Los Angeles, CA.

Johanna Fateman is a writer, musician, and owner of Seagull Salon in New York City.

Ann Hirsch is a video and performance artist who examines the influence of technology on popular culture and gender.

Amanda Hunt is Associate Curator at The Studio Museum in Harlem.

André Singleton is an artist and educator and a New School graduate.

Carmen Winant, moderator, is an artist, writer, and Professor of Visual Studies and Feminist Art History at Columbus College of Art and Design.
