Our feminist approach to surrealism needs to be more intersectional.
The Debutante editorial team are focusing on politicising our platform to take a stand against the systemic violence faced by black people. The omission of black people's voices and contributions in surrealist art history is by no means a simple oversight. Our feminist approach to surrealism needs to be more intersectional. We need to do better. One of the ways in which we aim to address this is through our monthly reading group, launching on Sunday 19th July. During the first session we will be discussing the Afrosurreal manifesto. Further details on how to join and a reading list to follow.
While we pause, we encourage you to read these free online resources:
Afrosurreal Manifesto by D. Scott Miller.
'The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House' by Audre Lorde
'The Other Side of Intercultural Performance' by Coco Fusco
Alchemy of the Soul: Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons exhibition
The Urgency of Intersectionality, Kimberle Crenshaw
Purchases of The Debutante Issue 01 from 2nd June to 9th June will go directly to Black Visions Collective.
