Twitter Mixtape: Women Filmmakers & Landscape

Sometimes I get stuck. Working on interrelated, (insofar as everything is is interrelated), but somehow disparate things during my degree, I often wind up spreading myself thin, like Marmite over the toast of documentary film, inhabitations, cohabitations, feminisms, trauma, material cultures, waste and so very much critical theory. In these moments, I often turn to twitter as an opening up or, to use academic-speak  ‘as a way into’ a topic, as a reminder of all the things you miss while attempting to write all of the things all of the time....more

Some observations from Keston Common

Home/work: some ramblings about Margaret Tait

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the ways in which women inhabit space creatively and the ways in which women (are allowed to) inhabit creative spaces. I have been turning this over in my mind (‘like an oval of soap turned between two hands’) since first seeing Margaret Tait’s Place of Work and, more recently again, after reading Katherine Angel’s wonderful piece Gender, Blah, Blah, Blah in the LA Review of Books last month.Below is a reworked extract from a recent piece I wrote for university about the ‘sexuate’ or gendered language of avant-garde filmmaking practice....more

We Love Barbie...But We Need New Dolls.

The world first met Barbie, Mattel’s flirty fashionista, in March 1959. Today, every little girl’s best plastic friend shows no signs of retiring. Her supernatural ability to adapt to each generation and pick up brown or Latina girlfriends has spawned many imitators. Still, she reigns. So much has changed for women since Barbie's birth. Why does her model persist?...more
